Thank you very much, Sergiy and Scott.

Since the background color of a graph can vary with the scheme, it
would be nice to have a working "invisible" option, though. For my
particular case, Scott's suggestion is very workable; thank you Scott.

Sergiy, thank you for the other example. I haven't tried this with any
other graph command. It looks like a bug to me, or an undocumented
feature. Maybe someone from Statacorp can explain.
