    I can see the usefulness of this tool---but there exists something called an "Astronomy Barchart" ---that may be available at Amazon--if you can get a hold of Amazon on your servers--I am unsure of your internet situations.

    Possibly translating the facts on the barchart to other languages maybe of greater importance--since the one which I am familiar with is in the English Language.

    The image is courtesy of AMAZON.com--it is an academic tool--So I don't believe that I am breaking copyright laws?

    You could try the Hyperphysics site: http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/hph.html

    And as a plus for users with English as a second language, the site is available in other languages as well.

    Update: Hyperphysics has been added (along with other resources) to the Educators' Zone.
