thanks. Will have a look

in the 1.0 series, for a 24hr chart, there's a number label 
every 2hrs for the time (00:00 02:00 04:00...), which I like 
In 1.4.2 there are labels only every 6hrs, so I have to 
count the alternating background shadings to find the time 
of any particular point.

As well there is a string, eg "wed" to show the day, next to 
the 6hr time marks, which I don't need on the 24hr chart. I 
know today is today and I don't care whether it's "wed" or 
"thur". Presumably "wed","thur" etc will be useful on the 
weekly chart, but I haven't looked.

OK will look at the antialiasing switches.

Thanks Joe
