It would be interesting to see an example of how this works.
The Stata Journal website says: " For compatibility=20

Erik is correct. What I was missing was that TeXShop is switching to Typeset->TeX and Ghostscript when I am typesetting a document that includes \epsfig calls. The direct call to pdftex (pdflatex) will work when PDFs are included, but not when eps are included, in TeXShop.

However my prior comment re B&W vs color stands: there is no problem including color eps files via that method.

Erik, please set your mailer to prevent winmail.dat from cluttering up the list. You may not see it, but we do. (Someone with a URL of is sending mail from Windows?!? My condolences!)
