I doubt you're missing anything. If you 
say within a -*label()- option 

.375 "37.5%" 

you are saying that even though the 
number is really .375 you want a display 
of "37.5%". This is a self-knitted percent 
format on the fly. 
---------------------------------------------
I don't see it. Here is an example -do- to generate a simple bar chart.
If I can avoid using -text- I would. But I don't see how to apply a
label change. I'm probably missing something, but I tried, more time
than I care to admit.
