    Yes, there is - SVG. I've done it once in an administration system and it's pretty easy to create simple charts with SVG and they don't require javascript (however, IE 8 and earlier don't run SVG without the help of a js library). You can style elements with CSS and even add dynamic stuff with js.

    That said, I agree that javascript is a very good tool for charts. Some time ago I used RaphaŽl - it's a js library that creates charts in SVG. What I did was I put my data into an ordinary HTML table and then used javascript to read the table and convert it to a chart using RaphaŽl. That worked well, was accessible and also looked very nice on mobile devices (edit - sorry for equalling mobile devices with iPhone and iPad only, I checked only in those...).
