I've used the charting components before and found the creator, Robert Edgar, to be very helpful. Make sure you take a close look at a lot of the examples as a vast majority of what I needed was found dispersed between most of them. Cheers, !k -Original Message- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Yeah, I'm making *slow* progress, partially with help of the examples, partially just trial-and-error. There appears to be a slow-down in responses from ePresenterPlus in recent times. I remember in the past their answers were lightning-fast, but these days it may take a week or two, even with

Is the problem that you can't run Javascript at all, or that you need to put the embed code in html instead of javascript? You could use this patent fix: http://www.unfocus.com/projects/patentmagic/ It still relies on scripting being enabled (so you'd still have this problem for anyone that
