  Here's what I came up with after a bit of experimenting (in Version 6):

Plot[x Sin[x], {x, -10, 10},
 PlotLegend -> {"Targets", "Dynamic MVPs"}, 
 LegendPosition -> {-0.8, -0.4}, LegendTextSpace -> 6, 
 LegendBackground -> Opacity[0], ShadowBackground -> Opacity[0]
 ]


     Hope that helps!
              C.O.
