and to play devil's advocate, i can think of a few advantages to doing it

    yeah, i think an image would weigh less than
    all the html and little images necessary to
    produce the same thing)

    no chance of not selecting the entire html graph
    to paste into something like word.  less chance
    of people messing with the numbers once it's been
    pulled into an authoring medium.

     as in consistency across all devices with
     graphical display capabilities)

just my 2¢,
