The RDFS/OWL Visualisation Language (RVL) is using concepts from the VISO/graphic ontology. The language allows for describing mappings from RDFS/OWL concepts to graphic attributes such as (viso-graphic:color_hsl_lightness) or other graphic relations (e.g. viso-graphic:Containment_Relation). Look at the post on RVL by Jan Polowinski.
