Can you explain here how they are linked? A flow chart would work well via a PDF. You could create a flow chart using just about any software, then convert it to a PDF and make a smaller version of a gif or jpg for viewing in HTML with an hyperlink when you click on the image it downloads a PDF with the entire flow chart or graph.

If you can try to explain exactly what type of links you are trying to show your users, I'm sure I could present a specific step by step answer.

PDF is not allowed. The diagram must be shown in a web page.

Are you restricted from using .XML, too?

Assuming you can use a JPG or PNG file (i.e. you're not required to use ASCII drawings)...
If you don't have access to microsoft's Visio you might try the Open Office suite's Draw program.

OxygenOffice Professional is a free add-on to Open Office, too, and includes clipart, templates, et al.
Its 32-bit Windows binary on http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=170021 is close to 250MB.
