You could automate the production of the -tw- code via a loop, as often
advertised on the list...

Betreff: st: how to have legend as labels on graph

A simple question. I have a simple line graph with multiple lines on it (one
line for each province, showing a single variable over time for each).
Having a legend is confusing as the chart will be in B&W and there are a
number of lines so, even with different line styles, it is difficult to see
which is which. What I want is to have the labels on the chart itself, next
to each line (e.g. on the right hand side), i.e. next to each line to have
the name of the province which it's for. I've tried and tried but am unable
to do this, is it possible???

Thank you!
