is it possible to have vertical text on a diagram in Reporting services 2

is it possible to have vertical text on a diagram in Reporting services 2

I'm working on a diagram in reporting services in which the x-axis is dates and the y axis the values for those dates

The report has a larrge number of dates and I would like it so that they are text aligned vertical, rather than horizontally so I can fit more in, but I can't see anyway of doing this:

ie at the moment they are

2-Jun-14 3-Jun-14 4-Jun-14 etc..

and I would like the dates to be at 90 degrees

cant do exactly what I mean here but
but with the digits at 90 degrees too, basically the text just at a 90 degree angle to the horizontal

is this possible? Ive seen it done in tables in report writer, and in Excel, but cannot see how to do it in Report writer 2. someone said to me they thought it was possible by directly editing the xml for the report?

Hope Ive explained ok, and someone can help
