Hi.  I have a smooth function f(x,y,z), such that for all (x,y) within
some rectangular region S, a unique z exists such that f(x,y,z) = 0.
I would like to have Mathematica *numerically* plot this implicit
function on S, but I can't figure out how to do it.  I've looked in my
Mathematica documentation without success (maybe I'm not looking in
the right places).  Is it possible to do this in Mathematica?  If yes,
where can I read up on it?

Thanks in advance!

P.S.  I couldn't find a FAQ for this group?  If one exists, where can
I get it?
