Rob:

Graphics primitives are the basic objects that Mathematica uses to  
describe graphics:


Plot[ArcSin[x],{x,0,1},
 Epilog->   (*or Prolog*)
   {{PointSize[.02],Point[{.7, ArcSin[.7]}],
    Text[{"x","y"},{.7, ArcSin[.7]},{-1,1}],(*{-1,1} is the offset*)
    Line[{{1,0},{1, ArcSin[1]}}]
   }}
]
 InputForm[%] (*to see the Mma code *)

 Show[Graphics[
	{
	{Thickness[.02],Hue[0], Line[{{0,0},{1,2},{2,0}}]},
	(*{..} isolate Thickness and Hue*)
	{PointSize[.03],Hue[.7],Point[{1,1}]},
	Text["blue point",{1,1},{0,-2}]
	},
	Frame -> True
]]
