possible mistake in FullGraphics documentation

Hi, all, 

   It seems that the documentation for FullGraphics might have a mistake in 
it. It says, "FullGraphics[g] should display the same as g, though it may 
have a different internal structure."

Yet the following two commands display significantly differently for me, in 
particular with respect to the Background->Grey (absent in the FullGraphics 
version) and opacity (absent in the Yellow and Red Backgrounds in the first 

In[76]:= g = Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4}, 
  Epilog -> 
   Text[Style[hi!, Blue, 24, Opacity[0.3], Background -> Yellow], 
    Background -> Red], Background -> Gray] 


In[78]:= $Version

Out[78]= "6.0 for Linux x86 (32-bit) (April 20, 2007)"

If anyone has some insight, please try to include me (cfo at in the 
reply list, since I am pretty sure that MathGroup messages to this address 
are getting lost in the aether.

                       Curtis O.
