It doesn't look like HTML because it is not HTML at all, it is actually SVG.
I found that creating exact locations for checkboxes, radios and text,
using raw HTML, is a pain, therefore I created my own library of functions
which combines SVG and Javascript.
The graphs are also SVG, although I am looking to embed normal R graphics
via shiny.
