Bill Rowe, In the cases presented in your latest email, the option ContourShading->False removes the Polygons (and shading) normally present in the output of (one or both) ContourPlot(s). This then makes it much easier to combine the contours, at the expense of losing the matching of contour shading to the contours shown. If you were implying that this option should be used in your first email, I missed it, which explains why we were on different wavelengths. No problemo.

The default number of contour lines makes this graphic rather difficult to interpret.
