5.14. Example - Stacked Bars, Shaded

This is a stacked bar chart, with the default 3-D shaded look. (Compare with Example 5.15, “Stacked Bars, Unshaded” which has no shading.) The only valid data types for stacked bars are 'text-data' (for vertical plots), and 'text-data-yx' (for horizontal plots).
