Nick Winter kindly provided this as a solution to my graph problem:

> program faclbl, rclass
>          syntax anything(name=numlist id="Label List") , ///
>                  [ Factor(int 100) local(string) ]
>
>          numlist "`numlist'"
>          foreach v in `r(numlist)' {
>                  local newlbl `"`newlbl' `v' "`=`v'*`factor''""'
>          }
>
>          return local label `newlbl'
>          if "`local'"!="" c_local `local' `newlbl'

Having run this, I've discovered that I get exactly the same 'wrong' graph
as I got after using Nick Cox's -mylabels- option. I think I've worked
what the problem is here, and anybody can correct me if they think I'm
wrong. It would appear to be that although the labels display as they
should, the line trends in the graph aren't changing with them: ergo, a
squashed graph. I'll send the attachments to both Nicks and see what they
say.

Whereever you go and whatever you do, just remember this. No matter how
many like you, admire you, love you or adore you, the number of people
turning up to your funeral will be largely determined by local weather
conditions.
