These are questions asked by pregier

This is inspired by MapleTA, but applies to Maple in general.  According to the documentation, bitmap plot devices do not allow for font selection, meaning the recommended textplot(...,font=[SYMBOL]) fails to render greek characters such as π in plots which are rendered for embedding in web pages.  This seems like a gaping omission, so we're hoping we've just missed something here.  Is there any way to get the symbol for pi onto a jpeg or gif plot?

I need to be able to enter number line plots into MapleTA questions and answers; I have found no built-in functions to do so, and as such have created my own crude Maple function for drawing them piece by piece.  However, this function is a bit longer and uglier than I would like to see replicated in every single question that uses it, so I was hoping to have questions share this function between them, hopefully in the form of a module or library, eventually with a variety of such functions, which I can maintain in one central location.
