I doubt you want to supply Dia along with your chart...
Either you picked a wrong tool for the job, or you should rethink your
expectations and adapt to the desired result with the tool on hand in mind.
I agree with Andrey, you are probably using the wrong tool for the job:
I suppose what you need is Inkscape, a vector graphics program: you can
slice the svg and make a web page out of it, or animate the SVG directly
(Inkscape doesn't support that directly). A bit of Javascript would do
what you need.
Also, consider Synfig as a tool for animations.


I do not know why, but I never received Andrey's reply. If there's more to the response, I do not have it.

Replying to Dima's message in reverse order, Synfig is definitely not the tool I need. That is not the type of "animation" I'm looking for.

I'm creating an organizational chart structure of information. If I choose to, I want to be able to click on an object, in this case a rectangle, and have another box, or window, open somewhere that gives me additional information about the data in the rectangle. The information the box/window will be the same type of information you would get from a footnote, endnote, or bibliography. It will simply tell me where I got the information from.
