Here is a routine that I go through a lot. Take some data set, do a fit 
or two, then plot the data along with the fit(s). Simple enough to do. 
Now, how can I do a Legend that incorporates both the data (usually 
points) and the fits (usually lines)? I can use PlotLegends to get the 
lines bit, but I usually put the points on the Plot with Epilog.

One thing I thought of was to generate a dense Table of the fitting 
function(s) and then use ListLinePlot along with Legends; however, here 
all works, except the Legends entry for the data is a line and not a 
point even though I used something like Joined->{False,True,True} to put 
points down for the data and lines for the fits.
