Thanks for the prompt and detailed reply. Evidently most things have gotten better as versions progress whereas some have gotten more difficult. Stata's advantages, among others, is its ability to quickly explore and visually highlight data (especially important with the non-statistical biomedical crowd). Perhaps subsequent versions will reinstate features such as [graph y box, by(x) vwidth] or similar things for categorical data, such as mosaic plots (see http://www.math.yorku.ca/SCS/friendly.html), making crosstabulations more readable. Till then I guess its down to using Stata 7.0 and to do without fancy graphics.
Regards
Stefan Kreisel
