Hello Charles,

A little over a year ago I wrote a function to do this in response to a
tech support query.  This function has recently gone up in the Technical
Support branch of our home page.

The Technical Support FAQ is at

http://www.wri.com/techsupport/

and the NormalProbabilityPlot function is at

http://www.wri.com/techsupport/Graphics/Axes/ProbabilityPlot.html

It's no full-fledged package since it was just a response to a query,
but it is a useful little function and might give a direction to go in
if you need more sophisticated things.

I recommend browsing the Technical Support FAQ in general while you're
there.

Best regards,

Robby
