Are you using version 6? If so, you should have noticed the
second argument to Dashing, i.e., ,0.5 was colored red
indicating a syntax error. Dashing expects a single argument,
either a number or a list of numbers. Change Dashing[0.015,0.5]
to Dashing[{0.15,0.5}] and you should get the desired result.
