Wannabe sparklines

The Handelsblatt website now does sparklines. Nice actually. If only they really were sparklines.

Lines in the Handelsblatt articles. Source: handelsblatt.com/4066396, 2011–04–15.

Funny: The line for Bayern Munich (a soccer team) is the stock price for Munich Re (an insurer). And the one for Bayer Leverkusen (also a soccer team) is for BMW (the automobile manufacturer).

The line details. Try it yourself or look at the whole page.

Pity: No number after the line. The first rule in my guide to sparklines.

Great pity: The line always shows a stock price. No matter what the article actually refers to.
