I don't understand what this does. This dynamically renders the graph, right? But what are the advantages of that? Are the nodes hot, like an imagemap? Can you scroll it, like a googlemap? Can you run parserfunctions inside the <graphviz> begin and end tags? If not, why load the server down by dyanmically regenerating them? Why not just recommend that authors download the Graphviz application, generate the png version of the graph and show that if it is always static?~ Phlox 07:06, 21 October 2007 (UTC)
