I'm not sure what you mean.

Are you asking how to display sql data in a HTML table? Or would you like to display graphs and charts based on your sql data?

for your chart, please use a chart control, there a bulk free, and give the control the row set.

To Generate HTML based on your MySQL database you can use QCODO: http://www.qcodo.com/
I've used this before and it's pretty handy.
Also what is the overall objective? Are you trying to manage your DB via your web browser? Or are you trying to make a simple report? For managing PHPMyAdmin is very useful.
And to simply have a table displayed on a web page in a chart form, use PHP to get the table values, and HTML to format the table.
QCODO may be too much if you just want to display one table in HTML.

Example:

<?
$username="username";
$password="password";
$database="your_database";

mysql_connect(localhost,$username,$password);
@mysql_select_db($database) or die( "Unable to select database");
$query="SELECT * FROM contacts";
$result=mysql_query($query);

$num=mysql_numrows($result);

mysql_close();

echo "<b><center>Database Output</center></b><br><br>";

$i=0;
while ($i < $num) {

$first=mysql_result($result,$i,"first");
$last=mysql_result($result,$i,"last");
$phone=mysql_result($result,$i,"phone");
$mobile=mysql_result($result,$i,"mobile");
$fax=mysql_result($result,$i,"fax");
$email=mysql_result($result,$i,"email");
$web=mysql_result($result,$i,"web");

echo "<b>$first $last</b><br>Phone: $phone<br>Mobile: $mobile<br>Fax: $fax<br>E-mail: $email<br>Web: $web<br><hr><br>";

$i++;
}

?>
