     This suggestion was for the plot, not the history.  The plot is a 
     500x400 16-bit (no transparency) image returned by a CGI call.
     
     I do agree that the shoe-horning to get the history is somewhat 
     ingenious.

I went and take a look at history plot to see what a good java application 
could do there, after reading Joe Zbiciak email.
     
But even java couldn't do better that what is currently done by the stat 
box. The plot isn't a GIF, it's produce by htlm code. If you take a look 
at a html source you'll see that it's pretty ingenius.
     
A horizontal bar is produce by shading a cell and by setting it width with 
a percent value compute by the stat box. You can go take a look, it's 
educational.
     
This process make a huge html text file but it's still less than the 
coresponding gif, and less work for the stat box.
