Yes.  For some definition of "tarting them up".
You can control the fonts, color, line style, fill style position of key
range, major tics, minor tics, logscale etc etc.

They're still ugly but they look a lot better.  Of course when you're
producing 50+ you're less inclined to "tart" each one up.  I went for
the defaults for all of my graphs apart from a few which I needed to be
readable across the room for a presentation.

If you have a specific "I want this to look better" instance send it
through and I'll have a play (of course this offer applies only after
Wednesday ;P)

Yours Tony
