Graphs are, well, graphical. HTML would generally be inappropriate. :-)
I'd recommend using SVG or PNG for static graphs, with SVG or <canvas> for
dynamic graphs, and providing tables for people who can't view the graphs.
The <meter> element in HTML5, once implemented, might help with simple bar
charts (like quota displays).
