After spending hours searching why a basic flot graph (as per the basic
example) would not render ( as in only draw the x and y axis, but not plot
and following all the hints ( the excanvas, the inline-block etc etc) none
of which solved the problem. (this is an MVC4 project), i decided to test
basic example by adding all my scripts and then eliminating one by one to
determine if conflicts arise. ( jquery 1.7.2, knockout-2.1.0 etc
and the culprit was modernizr-2.5.3.js If i remove the script reference
to this, Flot works, if its there Flot does not work.
