**Abstract:** X_{Y}-pic is a TEX-macro package for
typesetting graphs and diagrams. It is very modular and there is
support for typesetting *mathematical knots and links*. X_{Y}-pic's
documentation consists of a User's-Guide [Ros99] and a Reference
Manual [RM99] available on X_{Y}-pic's homepage [Ros]. Unfortunately the knot feature is not covered in
detail and (not only) this section is missing some basic examples.

This text is not intended to replace [RM99] or [Ros99]. I
want to introduce the knots and link feature under L^{A}TEX and more
important I want to give some examples.
