Is there anyway to add the line break in the client side ?
For example, I want the category axis label to be displayed as 


But my database(server) returns it as "JUN 2012" and I don't want to add "\n" there, but want to achieve it from client side.

Any ideas ?

Great!, Works almost like a charm. We have implemented in our VoxVote mobile voting solution,  So far so good.
With the given label font, now the y-axis with the \n wraps to 2 or more lines, overlapping other labels. 
Question: is there a way to set the height / margin between the lines after the wrap?

I am not sure whether I got this right - does specifying the line feed character via the MVC chart wrapper attribute produce the expected result with labels text wrapping?

How does this work with the MVC wrapper? the \n character will become a normal newline (instead of a new <text> tag)

To wrap the labels in multiple lines, inject a line feed character as instructed in the documentation: 

This should be applicable for category/value axis labels, legend items labels, etc.
