I create a Histogram (from Graphics`Graphics`Histogram) of frequencies 
of a data set as distributed into 20 categories of equal width.

What HistogramScale or other option do I specify, and with what value, 
so that the tick labels on the vertical axis show the percentage 
represented by each group?

Please try to tell me in plain language: I cannot understand the docs 
for Histogram in the HelpBrowser.
