a)You can use the "graphregion(color(white)))" option.
b)the banners are regarded as subtitles and so one manipulate them with the
"subtitle( )" option. Something like either:
subtitle(, pos(11 ) nob)
subtitle(, pos(11 ) )
subtitle(, pos(11 ) nobexpand)
And so all together:
twoway (scatter gnppc lexp), by(region, total graphregion(color(white)))
subtitle(, pos(11 ) nob)
Hope this helps,
Scott
