That did fix it. I should have just attempted that myself. For some reason,
(that I can't find now) I thought stripScripts() was ripping out the scripts
on region reloads even thought I knew that wasn't the case (or nested
regions wouldn't work).


I did discover a problem with PlotKit (which helped lead to the creation of
SimpleBars), which is that it doesn't support much without the Adobe SVG
Viewer installed. Since our clients use IE 6 and IE 7 almost exclusively,
that's probably not a great solution. I'm currently using a combination of
SimpleBars and GD::Graph to handle it just now, but I haven't yet found
something better either as Perl graphics or Open Source JavaScript/Flash

We may end up buying Emprise JavaScript Charts (http://www.ejschart.com/).
It's cheap and has a free (as in beer) offering, but not Open Source, which
I try to use when I can.
