Thanks Duy,

I'm not sure how my craphics will perform either. At the moment I use 
css/div's and small jpegs to make up one massive "drawing", it does not 
perform at all. So I'm looking at ways to improve drawing of the image.

Do you know if cairo will allow me to make my drawing interactive, something 
like this : http://www.graphviz.org/webdot/hnodes.html

Thanks for you time.

Kind regards
