Automatic is supposed to give you the labels only in tooltips. Are the
tooltips there when you put the cursor over a contour in the plot? True
gives displayed labels without tooltips, and All gives both. And if you look
in the documentation you can also write specifications for both the
displayed numbers and the tooltips.

Howdy all.

Something as simple as

ContourPlot[x/Exp[x^2 + y^2], {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2},
  ContourLabels -> Automatic]

(taken right out of the documentation forContourLabels)

fails to display any contour labels, nor does it when executed in the 
documentation window.  What am I doing wrong?  Is this a nasty?

FYI: the following option will at least cough up some labels.

ContourLabels ->
  Function[{x, y, z}, Text[Framed[z], {x, y}, Background -> White]]

Thanks,

David Wood
