[time-nuts] web presentation of data

what would be useful is to have some sort of "plotting engine" that is a
canned webpage (or stored locally on the user/client computer) that can
ingest fairly raw data from a URL..
something, conceptually, like this:
*invocation of plotting engine*
data value 1
data value 2
data value 3
that way, a relatively dumb controller (think arduino-ish) could talk to
the instrument and build a web page on the fly without having to do much
work on the client side (where, presumably, they have a display and some
computational horsepower to drive it)
A low end microcontroller has no problem serving readonly pages from
flash/SD, it just has a tough time doing graphics.
And, if you wanted the raw data, you serve up a page called "raw.html"
or something that just has the raw data.
