Yes, that reveals the hidden vertex and edge. Thank you! (I received a
similar, private, response from another MathGroup subscriber.)
Unresolved, though, is a more fundamental functionality issue: how to
get Mathematica directly to display a planar graph by means of a planar
embedding (i.e., no edges intersect except at their common vertices) --
without manual intervention by the user.
There are well-known methods for determining whether a given graph is
planar (including Kuratowski's Theorem), and I presume
Combinatorica`PlanarQ already implements such a method.
But actually constructing a plane embedding of such a graph is another
matter. I had hoped that Mathematica could do this at least for
relatively simple graphs. It seems no.
