Someone else will have to suggest a LaTeX or pdfLaTeX solution. I
don't use those variants except on rare occasions. Hence the
problem is not one that I can help solve. That is why I asked. 

It might be possible however to use PSTricks, which of course works with
LaTeX. I don't know if one can use PSTRicks with pdflatex.
