I assume he meant the statitics charts.  It's too bad this
MoinMoin system (which is really nice) relies on gdchart,
which is unavailable on most machines.  Once I did an 
informatl survey of MoinMoin sites, and found only one
site (twistedmatrix) that had this feature working.

I spent a few weeks over a year ago making a system that would
display graphs using only HTML tables (using cell coloring
for the bars in the graph), but I only got it half-functional.
(The story of my life...)

Anyway, my personal opinion is that SVG is prevalent enough
now that it is a good candidate to replace gdchart as
the graph output format.  But, alas, I don't have time to
work on this myself... :(
