Last week I had asked how I could emphasize a range of the x-axis in
a stacked bar graph. Vince Wiggins from StataCorp suggested placing
textboxes under the x-axis labels. Thank you for this creative
approach, Vince. Instead of a series of spaces as in your examples I
used a single space as text and added the width() option.

. sysuse uslifeexp
. drop if year>1910
. graph bar le_w le_b, over(year) stack ///
    text(-4 36 " ", box bcolor(yellow) width(42))

I am very pleased by the flexibility of the Stata graphics commands.
Thank you also for the upcoming bug fixes.
