Dear Mathgroup members,
I am very cautious in claiming to have found a bug in Mathematica, but 
here I am almost sure.
After loading the package

I tried to plot a simple BarChart:


However, if I want to restrict the plot range

BarChart[{4,10,5,7}, PlotRange->{3,10}]

Mathematica does not respond with an error message, but
still plots in the range {0,10}. (However, the y-axis is not visible in 
Furthermore, bar edges are visible only in the range {3,10}.
Finally, if the input list contains negative values, the bars hide the 
which is desastrous in my application.

I am really an adherent of Mathematica, but if I am right here I have to 
state that it is not possible to create publication quality BarCharts with 
Mathematica. (At least not with the
Add-On function BarChart.)

Any suggestions?
