Testing out a CfChart and I can't seem to get the labels to show with lableformat set to default.

I would like the values to display by default without the mouseovers so they also appear in PNG format.
<cfchart format="flash"


    chartwidth="800" labelformat="number" show3d="yes" showlegend="yes">


<cfchartseries type="bar" itemcolumn="Billions" seriesLabel="Economic Stimulus Allocation in Billions" paintstyle="shade">    

<cfchartdata item="Tax Relief" value="288"/> 

<cfchartdata item="State and Local Fiscal Relief" value="144"/>   

<cfchartdata item="Infrastructure and Science" value="111"/>  

<cfchartdata item="Protecting the Vulnerable" value="81"/>   

<cfchartdata item="Health Care" value="59" />   

<cfchartdata item="Education and Training" value="53" />

<cfchartdata item="Energy" value="43"/>

<cfchartdata item="Other" value="8"/>

That did the trick. The tag documentation in Dreamweaver explains the attribute as datalablestyle ="style". That makes no sense at all unless it takes on a different meaning depending on the chart type.
Thank you very much.
