    If you set the rotation angle in the X Axis, the text will render, apparently rotated around the center of the text.

    <XAxis DataLabelsField="IncidentType">
        <LabelsAppearance DataFormatString="{0}" RotationAngle="60">
        <TitleAppearance Text="Incident Type"></TitleAppearance>

    I've used a lot of different chart controls in Windows and web development, and this is the first time I've seen this.  Normally, the label text on the x axis would be rotated with the pivot point being the first letter.  That way, the beginning of the text is still centered underneath the column it goes with.  Now the text looks like it is off, and you have to widen your chart to see that the pivot point of the rotation is the center of the text, not the left edge. 
    Can this get fixed?  Or at least give us the option for how we want to rotate the text.
