Yes the line is fragmented, it should be one solid line with a step at
each event (i.e. cumulative incidence curve). I used both WMF and EPS
and the problem is the same, so the problem does not seem to be the
format of the graph. The journal accepts wmf, eps, ps, or ai (adobe
illustrator) formats. Any suggestions aprreciated!

Thanks.
