I am trying to generate a _simple_ bar chart along the lines of...

	XSpacing -> 0.25, YSpacing -> 0.1,
	AxesEdge -> {Automatic, None, Automatic},
	Boxed -> False,
	Ticks -> {{{1,1},{2,"1.5"},{3,2.3},{4,3},{5,4}}, None, Automatic},
	ViewPoint->{2, -20, 1.0}

Of course, I'm printing to a color printer and want MY results to stand out.  
I'd like to do this by having the first row and second row in two different  
colors. Alas, although the function browser says that I should be able to set  
the style,...

  BarChart3D[list, opts] creates a three-dimensional bar
   graph of the  rectangular matrix list. 
   BarChart3D[{{{z, style},...}...},opts] creates a bar
   graph with a specific style for each bar. 
   BarChart3D[{{{x, y, z}, style}...}]  creates a bar
   graph of bars scattered at specific x and y coordinates
   with height z and a specific style.

I cannot figure out what form is acceptable for "style". Needless to say, I am  
a bit frustrated at the moment since surveying the slew of Mma books on my  
shelves (as well as a trip to the bookstore to review THOSE books) did not  
resolve this issue! Someplace along the line, someone needs to document the  
options for the options in Mma!

Any help would be mutch appreciated. Thanks,
