I tried to search the web on how to make the background transparent for a figure drawn by xfig --- this is what I want. I got the following message: When a figure is exported in .fig format, I could have the choice to make the background transparent. Does anybody have any ideas on:
1. How to choose the background and transparent colors?
2. How to paste a .fig by latex? I need this graph for my conference paper.
Thanks in advance.

Jing, perhaps I didn't catch exactly what you wanted! 
Anyway, try to draw the 2 pictures on the same depth, say 50, without using 
different depths.....
