Is it possible to create charts with XML. What I am trying to do is build a database application and it will need to be able to generate reports. I will need to be cross-platform and open source. Because I'm new to the idea of XML I will be reading up extensively on this but I just wanted to get an idea first.
Can you create charts with XML? Can XML be embedded in some cross-platform widget (like a page) and then printed? (I told you I vuagely understand it). Because I can't find a cross platform, open source report generator which can generate charts or tables I'm thinking of building this myself.
Am I on the right track or is this a little too ambitious. I have years to build this so time is not a huge constraint.
