```Will,

I want to add to my first reply. You don't actually need DrawGraphics for
this example. Everything is a graphical primitive so just use
Show[Graphics[{...}],opts] instead of Draw2D. DrawGraphics would only be
usful if you wanted to, say, add fitted curves to the plot or do other
customizations.

Hello,

Having been used to plotting graphs in another system, I find myself out of
my
depth in Mathematica :)

In the attached code, I use the MultipleListPlot & Legend packages to
try and plot a set of curves with some overlayed points using
DisplayTogether. This works well until I try and add a legend (with
PlotLegend) as you can see. The second set of data is scaled way out of
proportion. Is this a misconception on my part?

(I don't really want to do everything in a single MultipleListPlot
because I algorithmically assign colours to the first set of graphs
with something like
manyHues[steps_] := Table[{Hue[i/steps, 1, 0.8]}, {i, 1, steps, 1}]
Maybe there's a better way to do this...)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks!

Will Robertson
