Google Chart API Revisited. Marty does some more digging. # 11:59 pm

Google, I appreciate you trying to help, and I understand that this grew out of needs for Google Finance, where stock prices can never dip below zero. But there’s really not that much data out there in the real world that always exists solely above the origin.
