The ExtendGraphics package by Tom Wickham-Jones, which I think you can get
from MathSource at the Wolfram site, has a LabelContourLines command that
will label lines from a previously generated ContourPlot. It is explained in
his book "Mathematica Graphics". An example from his book is


plot1 = ContourPlot[Sin[x]Sin[y], {x, 0, \[Pi]}, {y, 0, \[Pi]},
      ContourShading -> False];


The DrawGraphics package from my web site below has a DrawLineLabels command
that will label Lines that have a function of the coordinates
f[x,y]==constant. That includes contour values from contour plots. The
package comes with Help and many examples including labeling a contour plot.

is there an automatic way in Mathematica 5 to label contour lines in
ContourPlots with the value they represent?

Thank you very much in advance.
