Hi Murray,

Both _GraphEdit.m_ and _JavaGraphics.m_ packages are part of Mathematica 
standard installation.

_GraphEdit.m_ is said to "render graphics with V5 front end," and 
contains two functions: *SetGraphics* and *ResetGraphics*. The usage 
massages read, respectively:

"SetGraphics[type] sets the type of graphics cells generated by graphics
commands.  \"type\" may be \"SymbolicGraphics\", \"PostScript\", or 
\"Compare\"", and

"ResetGraphics[] restores the display function used before the GraphEdit
package was loaded."

According to the *ReadMe.txt* file located in the packages directory: 
"This directory contains files called by version-specific init.m files. 
Most of them set up the correct mode for display of graphics on 
different machines. [...] JavaGraphics.m         : send graphics to Java
