Remaking a Washington Post graph, part 1

This is the first part of a tutorial for making a graph like this one on the Washington Post website. My clone of the graph will use RaphaëlJS, and unfortunately my clone doesn’t yet work in Internet Explorer; it should work fine in any other browser.

You can see the cloned graph here.

Who’s this tutorial meant for? It’s aimed at people who already know the basics of JavaScript, who have little or no experience with making visualizations from scratch, and who haven’t used RaphaëlJS. Chances are, this tutorial will sometimes be too basic, and sometimes assume too much. I apologize in advance. If you have any questions, I’d be happy to try to answer them.
