And iif you really, really, REALLY, really only want one (seems like
I have at least on like that for some reason), graph the same one twice,
change the color for the second one to match the first (or I've heard you
can set it to transparent, or to match the background--transparent might be
neat, background color could create problems--I've done neither).
