Hi Aardvark

There's no need to be quite so harsh is there? I know you don't 
intend to be, but that's quite an intimidating response. I mean, if 
somebody wants advice on a free org chart builder for a one off job 
... what's wrong with that? Besides, there's no sense in buying 
something blind, and there's a wealth of industry info amongst the 
subscribers here.

Interested in experimenting with JSP or Java Servlets? Apache's 
tomcat (http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html) is a really 
simple install -- just uncompress the binary (win / *nix), check a 
couple of environment path variables, and you're good to go. You 
don't even need a server installed if you're just playing around on a 
development machine, it'll take over your localhost:8080 port. Rock 
and roll.
