Bob, the argument of your function h must be I * s in both the magnitude
plot and the phase plot. You are therefore making a mistake in ALL of your
magnitude plots.

I used the code below for each example at the link: 

In several cases I got what appears to be the same result as pictured at the
link, but in other cases I got very different plots. The fourth example is
particularly strange. Am I doing this wrong?

I'm plotting magnitude and phase on a single plot in each case, and I'm ONLY
plotting the exact curves -- assuming I have the right formulae for them. I
see no point in approximate plotting techniques, with exact plots readily

SetOptions[LogLinearPlot, PlotStyle ->
     {Red, Blue}, PlotRange -> All,
    ImageSize -> 500];
db = 20*Log[10, Abs[#1]] & ;

h[s_] = 100/(s + 20);
LogLinearPlot[{db[h[s]], Arg[h[I*s]]*(180/Pi)},
    {s, 1, 10^3}];

h[s_] = (100*s + 100)/(s^2 + 110*s + 1000);
LogLinearPlot[{db[h[s]], Arg[h[I*s]]*(180/Pi)},
    {s, 10^(-2), 10^4}];

h[s_] = 10*((s + 10)/(s^2 + 3*s));
LogLinearPlot[{db[h[s]], Arg[h[I*s]]*(180/Pi)},
    {s, 10^(-1), 10^3}];

h[s_] = (-100*s)/(s^3 + 12*s^2 + 21*s + 10);
LogLinearPlot[{db[h[s]], Arg[h[I*s]]*(180/Pi)},
    {s, 10^(-2), 10^3}];

h[s_] = 30*((s + 10)/(s^2 + 3*s + 50));
LogLinearPlot[{db[h[s]], Arg[h[I*s]]*(180/Pi)},
    {s, 10^(-1), 10^3}];

h[s_] = 4*((s^2 + s + 25)/(s^3 + 100*s^2));
LogLinearPlot[{db[h[s]], Arg[h[I*s]]*(180/Pi)},
    {s, 10^(-1), 10^3}];

Here is a nice example from a website I found.
