This starts out as a simple area chart, and then I add some annotated
labels at certain points along the top edge of the area.  Also, along
the horizontal axis, I turn the value labels sideways using value=(a=90).
To get reflines at every tickmark on the horizontal axis, except the
first and the last, I have to hardcode them (rather than using autohref),
as follows...

  href=(1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997)

I use the 'italic' sas/graph software font in one of the footnotes.
And, the most noticeable thing, I use annotated strips of color in 
the background to make it look like a color gradient shading.
