Is there a way to add a manual line break to an XAxis label? I've tried setting the label text (from code-behind) as follows:

Line 1<br>Line 2
Line 1<p>Line 2</p>
Line 1\nLine 2

I'm not particularly familiar with svg text formatting, so I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Hi Andy, 

SVG does not offer line breaks in a text element directly. This is part of the element's specification: http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/text.html#Introduction : SVG performs no automatic line breaking or word wrapping. I am afraid that line breaks are, therefore, not supported in the RadHtmlChart either.

That's a pretty big limitation.  

In case anyone else is looking for this functionality, there's a case in the PITS for tooltip and label templates that might help in this regard.  Vote if you're interested.
