Hm, what do you mean by saying "not so well"? If it's just that it
isn't antialiased as good as you'd like it to be, then just export it

at higher resolution and scale it down with some pix-image tool

Aside from that, it really depends on what diagrams you're creating.
Personally, I turned away from xfig a bit, but that's mostly due to its

interface. I like dia for flow-charts and similar stuff and inkscape
for more graphic intensive stuff.

Fooling with bitmap resolutions gives me a headache, and I havent' figured out

how to make it look good on screen and also good when printed.* My students
print my pages a lot.

Thanks for Inkscape, tho -- it is perfect for me.* I like the interface, and since it saves
in SVG format, I get web pages without the intermediate bitmap bother. The

results are much better
