Re: mandelbrot in version 7 & Ruskeepaa version 3

There is a space missing between I and y in the expression mandelbrot[x +  
Iy] (should be mandelbrot[x + I y]). Also, you should omit the semicolon  
after DensityPlot, otherwise the plot will not be shown.

Incidentally, tabulating the values and then plotting them with ArrayPlot  
is faster for this example than using DensityPlot. That is,

ArrayPlot@Table[
   mandelbrot[x + I y],
   {y, -1.5, 1.5, 0.005}, {x, -2.0, 1.0, 0.005}
  ]
