Thanks. Your suggestion is helpful.

I also experimented with placing a line-symbol-reference within the 
caption.  The line-symbol-reference is a legend for the linetypes used 
in the plot.

I center-aligned adjacent horizontal underscores behind the 
filledTriangle symbol.  I did this by nudging the underscores (ALT+left, 
etc.)  This little exercise was futile.  There was extra spaces where 
the underscores were and this just seems too difficult.  Any hints?
