Not sure why you are having trouble.
htdocs/screenshots/finance_work2.py is working for
me >>with matplotlib CVS, 0.83.2 and 0.83
After seeing that it worked with finance_work2.py and
spending the better half of today on it. It turns out
'horizontalalignment', 'right', fontsize=textSize,
has to be right before the show() or the savefig() for
the text to show correctly. In previous version of
matplotlib it did not matter but with 0.83 it has to
be after you have finished plotting.
Thanks for your help.
