Utpala Anand (t_uanand -at- QUALCOMM -dot- COM) asked about presenting org charts
vertically, without implying hierarchical relationships between the various
names in each vertical stack.

Try altering the color and shape of the boxes to indicate (or create) your
Also try background colors to tie each group (or level, or whatever) together.
Either way, align the names in each stack to reinforce their grouping.

So, for example, you might have blue rectangles at the far left, then green
rounded-rectangles, then brown circles, and so on. Or the outlines of the
boxes and the type inside of them could get progressively heavier for each
level of the hierarchy.
