svg.charts depends heavily on lxml and cssutils. Thanks to the contributors of those projects for stable, performant, standards-based packages.

Thanks to Sean E. Russel for creating the SVG::Graph Ruby package from which this Python port was originally derived.

Thanks to Leo Lapworth for creating the SVG::TT::Graph package which the Ruby port was based on.
