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?
