Abstract.  Background shading of time series and other plots is a common need. For example, we often wish to identify particular periods of recession or war or other distinct conditions. The shading should be laid down before the data elements (for example, data points or lines). Several methods of shading can be effective. Tips are included for automating the production of a series of similar graphs.
