Harumph!  For the very simple graphics that I've generated, I've 
tried a bunch of different things, and I'm not thrilled 
double-editing documents.  For example, given a name STEMP to 
represent the supply temperature of something, I've tried &STEMP; and 
<%STEMP%>.  So far I've ended up with <myns:var>STEMP</myns:var> and 
debating about the 4 other XML ways of representing the same thing.

And it would be nice if they worked out whatever it is that they need 
to work out to make it work.  The "Macintosh IE users should complain 
to Microsoft" cruft should go away.

I'm betting a PythonCard-like application with SVG and XForms would rock.
