What is this?
to allow d3 to work as elegantly with the Raphael (http://raphaeljs.com/) vector drawing library
as d3 natively does with SVG.
Because Internet Explorer <= 8 doesn't support SVG, and thus doesn't support d3.
See it in action!

Bar Chart Example:
Area Chart Example:
More examples to come.
How can I use this?
On any example page, you should be able to view-source and see exactly how something is done.
How you can help?
If you find d3 and raphael useful together, please help! This project only exists because of the awesome work of the open source community.
This project wouldn't mean anything without the work of Mike Bostock (http://bost.ocks.org/mike/) on d3
and Dmitry Baranovskiy (http://dmitry.baranovskiy.com/) on Raphael.
