hi all,
  I am trying to plot several Listplot on the same graph using different PlotStyle
and PlotLegend to show the curves. I have tried Listplot and  used Show[] to display it 
and save to an "EPS" format. I am
not sure if the PlotLegend can be used at the same time the following:
Show[a,b,c,d] where a,b,c,d are individual ListPlot commands. 

I also tried the MultipleListPlot which I thought it is supposed to do the trick.
Problem is the PlotStyle of the curve is not conforming what I wanted.

MultipleListPlot[ue, pe, ug, pg, PlotLegend -> {"a", "b", "c", "d"}, 
  PlotJoined -> True, 
  PlotStyle -> {{AbsoluteThickness[0.1], 
        Dashing[{0.03}]}, {AbsoluteThickness[1], 
        Dashing[{0.01, 0.05, 0.05, 0.05}]}, {AbsoluteThickness[1.5], 
        Dashing[{0.06}]}, {}}]

I can see the legend, but the curves are too thick and there is no dashing displayed.

Any idea what I should do and if the normal ListPlot with the Show[] command
can do the trick together with the PlotLegend.
