Hi, you guys at WRI: The Legendre function algorithm does not work for some values of the argument for very high orders. For example, try Plot[LegendreP[39.5,x],{x,-0.3,0},PlotRange->{-1,1}] (Mathematica 2.0 on Mac II fx) Maybe such high orders are rarely needed, but at least, one should know the limitations of the method.
