Help With PlotLegend, please.

I am plotting three curves on the same 2D plot and wish to plot a legend
below that indicates which is which.  The problem I'm having is that
more darkly shaded lines (using the Thickness[] option) do not appear
any darker or thicker on the legend, which makes distinguishing the
solid lines in the plot impossible.

Here's my Mathematica 3.0 input:

*******************************************************************
Plot[{f[x],g[x],h[x]},{x,xlow,xhigh},PlotStyle->{{},Dashing[{.02}],
 Thickness[.008]},PlotLegend->{"f(x)","g(x)","h(x)"},LegendPosition->
 {-1,-1.2},LegendSize->{1.7,.5}]
*******************************************************************

f[x] is a normal solid line
g[x] is a dashed line
h[x] is a thick solid line


The problem is that the legend lines for f(x) and h(x) appear
indistinguishable, both in the mathematica output and on a printed
postscript file of the plot.

What may I do to remedy this?

Thanks,

AC
