I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to use a table as a legend of
sorts, as I have a very busy graph I'm trying to describe.
- I'm visualizing data from a series of similar but not-quite-identical
- I'd like to have the simulation parameters displayed in a table format,
with an example line from the graph next to each row
So, I might have rows that look like:
"Line", "Alpha", "Beta"...
"-----" , "0.125", "2.0"....
"- - -", "0.120", "2.0"....
The problem is I can't figure out how to include a line "sample" like what's
included with the legend in a table, and I can't figure out how to make
legend entries that don't have any lines. I suspect that I could make a
dummy white plot, and use that for my data entries in a legend and make a
legend-table hybrid that way. However, I think using a table would be
cleaner and look nicer.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to get this working?
While I'm posting, another quick question -- my text output looks really
shoddy, even at high DPIs. It looks like somebody took a screenshot of a
tiny font and scaled it up with a linear filter. I have freetype installed,
and the matplotlib build script outputs the following, if it's helpful:

Thank you in advance for any advice!
