*All* the examples at

require that the attached .hluresfile be installed
in the user's home directory.
This makes the default font helvetica and changes the
default text function code from a colon [ : ] to
a tilde [ ~ ]

The reason you got the strange characters after "Figure 1"
is that you are using the default text function code
but it is not finding the character sequence.

Basically, just install the .hluresfile
in your home directory. Then remove all
places where you explicitly specify helvetica

good luck
