I need to create a cdf document as a standalone file that can be used in 
a computer without Mathematica.   There is quite a few plots in the doc 
and I need to add nice legends to it.   At first I tried the Legend 
package but I found the result awful and worse than that it breaks the 
standalone cdf (something to do with Needs and Get or the like). 

It seems that I need to add a initialization code within Manipulate but 
I have no idea on how to do it.  Could someone help me with an example, 

Finally, is there a simple way to create nice legends?  I saw several 
posts on the web but could not gather much from them.  A nice and simple 
example (for a newbie) will help me a lot.

Many thanks
