Taped into the front of my copy of Michael Michell's  "A Visual Guide to Stata Graphics" are two useful reference cards:
-asciiplot- which gives a reference chart for the ASCII characters on my system. Downloadable from SSC.


-vgcolormap- which gives a reference chart of Stata's graph colo(u)rs. 

The latter is installed from 
. net from http://stata-press.com/data/vgsg
as it as part of the materials that go with Michell's excellent book. I mention this because a -findit- command for vgcolormap will come up empty.
