Dr. Lisse,

Brilliant!  Thank you so much.  This is clearly the best option,  I still have 
to learn more before using it.

For example, I get the error:

"LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of graphic in lines.pdf (no BoundingBox)."

But if I "show output anyway" I get lined paper.  Lines are going horizontal 
rather than vertical, but nonetheless there is my text AND numbered lines in 
the same document!

Thanks again!
