Computer typesetting systems can produce high quality
printed pages suitable for the production of books, journals, and newspapers in
final form. Little effort to date has been applied to the problem of
including and placing arbitrary graphic figures within processed text.
In this paper we describe a system, constructed around existing
typesetting software, which allows figure definition and placement.
Key features of the system are a wide range of figure sources; figure
preview facilities; figures-only output and compatibility with
non-graphic printing devices, where figures are plotted separately; support
of a figure language for in-line figure definition; and figure placement
algorithms which are changeable at the user level.
