Yes. The purpose of the graphics is to serve, support and clarify the text.
It's inconceivable to me that I *shouldn't* do whatever is necessary to
make sure that happens.

(Now a graphic artist would probably reverse what I just said, saying the
purpose of the text is to serve, support and clarify the graphics. You
*did* ask a writer, you realize?)

Have fun,
