Staggered Data Labels

Sometimes large data series labels visually run together, which makes the chart hard to understand. By default d4 will try to stagger both the data series labels and the axis labels. You can disable this feature by setting stagger(false).

Obviously none of these charts are partially nice to look at. d4's stagger is an attempt to make the best of a bad visual situation. Ideally these kinds of situations can be avoided by giving charts enough visual space to breath.
