Nick, Martin, José Maria

thank you so much for your help.

-linkplot- is great and does the job I was hoping for.

I take this opportunity to kindly ask Statacorp to fix -xtline- as soon as
possible. I believe that the situation discussed today is quite common and
many statausers would appreciate it.

Giovanni
