Now mainly C++/Ruby-Rails/SQL/Oracle/jQuery/git.

I started out programming MC68000 assembler for Sinclair QL when i was 16. Studied Computer Science. Developed mostly in C++ ever after. Moved to Ruby on Rails recently.

Indeed, line width is very similar to what i proposed, and maybe even clearer. Normally I would presume if the chart-data is dense, using the bubbles you would get close to the same effect. If it is not, using the lines will be much clearer.

Ok, that is what you normally do. The javascript is added unobtrusively: if you leave out the js, it still works. But you say: reload the page to add DOM elements, without javascript enabled.

I do not completely understand this: do you mean detecting if javascript is enabled or not, and if not redirect to a different page? Sounds good. How do you do that: detecting javascript without javascript? Always redirecting unless you can block it with javascript? This way you can offer two different pages. Not quite unobtrusive :) but for such a case as this, maybe the most elegant: you get a very elegant js-enabled page, and fallback on a basic html page if needed.
