Using javascript per-se is not a violation of WCAG guidelines, provided
that there's still the same or equivalent functionality when javascript
is disabled/not present. In this case - from what I can see doing a quick
scan of the article - the javascript only compensates for IE's shortcomings
for the visual representation. If the js doesn't kick in, the worst that
happens is that the lines are not "width-limited". So no, this is certainly
not a violation.
