Stats Page: Make Date Markers (and Weekdays) Clearer in Charts

description

It would be nice if the little lines that correspond to date values at the bottom of the X-axis were bolder than the other lines. When a period of 2 months or 30 days is selected it's not absolutely clear which markers correspond to the dates that are listed.

It would also be nice to have the days of the week displayed somehow. Each value doesn't have to be explicitly labeled though - perhaps the little lines that represent Sunday could be a bit longer than the others, or something like that :)

One thing that can help, if you haven't noticed it already, is when you hover your cursor over the dot on the line chart it will display the exact date for that marker.

Thanks, but I find that hovering the mouse over a dot doesn't work correctly; most of the time I don't get any tooltip at all. I'm using IE7 on Vista.

If you could add the day of the week to the tooltip, and get the tooltip to show up every time, that might be an acceptable solution :)

(Although making the lines more pronounced would still be a welcome addition...)
