I have it on good authority that the Stata Journal would have 
absolutely no objection to correlation matrices as graphs not 
tables, if that promoted the aims of the paper. 

More generally, you could do it in black and write. It 
would be puzzling if an editor or reviewer objected to
the same information being presented in a better way. 

Naturally, -corrtable- has its limits too, but they are
for correlation matrices so big that they probably shouldn't be printed
anyway.

It is pretty neat looking.  I would have written sooner but I had to
wait for it to finish running.  :)I don't know how many journals would
let you include a graphic for your correlation matrix, but yes, it
certainly is less boring than the usual output and could be great for a
presentation.  Thanks for writing it.
