I bet there's a great deal of gratitude for those tools, I am amazed at the
breadth and detail of this system.
A particular part that may be of general interest to this list : 21 Graphs,
Networks, and Trees 
Here is an example of an undirected, cyclic disconnected graph, in which the
nodes are annotated with three-letter codes for airports, and the arcs
connecting the nodes are represented by horizontal and vertical lines, with
90 degree bends used simply to avoid having to draw diagonal lines.
Airline Connections in Southwestern USA
Next is a markup of the graph, using <arc> elements to encode the arcs.
label='Airline Connections in Southwestern USA'
<node label='LAX' id='LAX' degree='2'/>
<node label='LVG' id='LVG' degree='2'/>
<node label='PHX' id='PHX' degree='3'/>
<node label='TUS' id='TUS' degree='1'/>
<node label='CIB' id='CIB' degree='0'/>
<arc from='LAX' to='LVG'/>
<arc from='LAX' to='PHX'/>
<arc from='LVG' to='PHX'/>
<arc from='PHX' to='TUS'/>
