Ah, this make sense ;-) Can I ask to change the wording in the manual 
(especially using the word 'offset' would have explained it to me).

I also thought that stack was something like an AREA in the sense that it 
causes an area to be coloured, which it obviously doesn't.

How would the syntax be then ? Because ATM the AREA definition will cause 
it to start back at the baseline. If it wouldn't in the developers 
release, then it would break existing graphs I use ;)

Thanks for your help, Alex !
