Thanks, that is a bit of an improvement, but still does not look too 
good to me.

The text on the y axis is written in a way I've never seen on any 
publication, where there letters are stacked one above the other, like 
floors in an office block. Normally the text is written as one would 
normally write (left to right), then its rotated 90 degrees on the y-axis.

I hate to say it, but producing presentation quality graphs in Excel is 
not that hard (although I much prefer Sigmaplot), but I've not seen 
anything in Mathematica that is anywhere near this, although I guess it 
can be done.

Can anyone give any examples of presentation quality graphs produced 
from lists of data?
