Are you sure?  I thought PlotKit only needed the Adobe SVG plugin when 
it rendered SVG charts.  Jifty's PlotKit doesn't have any code to render 
SVG charts right now, only canvas charts, which are supported in IE by 
Google's Ex(plorer)Canvas.  IE (with no SVG plugin) seems to render 
Jifty's PlotKit charts just fine for me.

The PlotKit website says: HTML Canvas: Safari 2+, Opera 9+, Firefox 
1.5+, IE 6 (in emulated mode)
