I don't think you can do this short of 
changing the numbers, which I presume is 
generally regarded as unacceptable practice. 
Otherwise put, what looks confusing is really part 
of the information, and the issue is 
tuning other aspects of the design, 
e.g. line thickness, to reduce visual clutter.
