Dear Advanced Mathematica Users,

        I wish to change the point size of a graph that I am making that
uses the function ErrorListPlot, from the package Graphics`Graphics.  My
problem is this: I cannot find a method to control the size of the data
points displayed.

        Unlike for ListPlot, as shown by Options[ErrorListPlot], the
option PlotStyle is unavailable.  Moreover, when I try using
Prolog->{PointSize[0.007]} or Prolog->{AbsolutePointSize[4]} the graph
remains unaffected (though if I use Prolog->{PointSize[0.007],
RGBColor[1,0,0]} the points and error bars turn red as expected).  As
shown by InputForm, the graphics output of ErrorListPlot always has the
directive of PointSize[0.015], which I cannot seem to affect.

        Therefore, my question is, how can I have a scatter plot with
error bars and elegantly small data points?

                    James J. Fuite.
