I think the problem of the original poster (Andreas Stiehler <email@example.com>)
was different. He wants to specify different label colors for stacked bars.
Imagine a stacked bar chart with a lower bar-region in, say, black and and an
upper bar-region in white. In this case one wants to have white labels in the
lower bar and black labels for the upper bar. There is a solution with -graph
twoway bar- (see my posting from yesterday). However this solution seems to
be a bit complicated, given that on can tackle a similar problem directelly
with -graph pie-.
