I want to write something below my plot. Here is an example:

    Graphics[Text["Figure 2",Scaled[{.5,0.0}],{0,6}]]},
   {AspectRatio -> Automatic,
    Frame -> True,
    PlotRegion -> {{0.,1.},{.2,1.}}}]

The "Figure 2" shows up just fine on the screen. However when I print
it, the "Figure 2" does not appear. I am running on a Macintosh
7300/200 running OS 8.0, and printing to a LaserWriter using
LaserWriter 8.4.3.

I tried the same thing on a friend's PC, and the "Figure 2" printed out
just fine.

The problem seems to be a clipping at the boundary of the plot. If I
position the "Figure 2" just right (using Text["Figure
2",Scaled[{.5,0.062}],{0,2}]) then only the top half of the letters
gets printed.

Are there any magic incantations which would fix the problem on my
