Actually, as of this moment the PARVATI server does not print out a
plot of the isotropic B per residue.  But it could, easily enough.
I'll put a 'beta test' version up at 


This has the Biso plot, as well as selectable options to use S(u,v) as
a validation criterion and to attempt to deconstruct shelxl-style
residue numbering back into PDB-style chain identifiers.  You're
welcome to try it out, but it's not been extensively tested.
Let me know of any problems.
