Hi Mike,

Good afternoon.

I'm learning your series tutorial from, which is really good for beginner like me to handle D3.

While all previous pages (no SVG, or Raw SVG) works by showing the bar chart, but for this one (use data.tsv) and the previous one (SVG+ embedded data), nothing showed up in the page.

should I add something within the index.html showed above?

I figured it out. the problem is from this line: var x = d3.scale.linear()
"linear" cannot be identified by my d3 even use
