I'm working on updates to the sales comparison charts. I've relabeled one of the Gap Charts, so it shows "PS5 Lead > 0 / Wii Lead < 0" and removed the "XXX Lead" in the header. What do you all think?

It makes sense. Thanks.

No problem. Someone pointed out how confusing the label was, so I decided to make it easier to understand.

The issue with that is the image uploader for us resizes all images to 640 pixels wide, so if I did that the main part the chart would be much smaller to look at.

Having it next to the 0 ain't too bad. I've already got this week's sales comparison articles written and will have them posted once per day for the rest of the week. I'll see if I can figure out how to get those arrows added in Excel for future articles.
