David Airey <david.airey@vanderbilt.edu> notes that the advice about getting
fully black bars from -graph twoway bar- that he received David Harrison
<david.harrison@icnarc.org> and from Stata Technical Services were both
helpful, but a bit fiddly to make work.

I think the apologies are most definitely ours.

There is an easy way to turn up the intensity of the fill from the default 80%
to 100%; simply add the -fintensity()- option.  That should have been easy,
but it turns out we did NOT document the -fintensity()- option.  In fact, it
is such a closely guarded secret that Stata's own Technical Services did not
know about it.

David's command would become,

   . graph twoway bar y x, barwidth(0.5) fintensity(100) color(black) 
     ylabel(0(25)100)

We will update the help files to reflect this formerly secret option.
