If, using the Format/Cell, Borders dialog, the user may insert some 
space between the cell contents (ie, the data bar) and the cell 
(possibly invisible) border, then the large layout is the best for me. 
In this case, with the small version, the user is constrained to have 
some spacing which he might not want. Thus the large layout fits more
