Does the Graphics package contain a provision for plotting data on a 
normal probability grid? That is a grid such that plotting a normal (or 
Gaussian) distribution results in a straight line. In general, given the 
"Graphics" package is loaded, how does one determine just what types of 
grids it furnishes? The 1400-page Mathematica Book just put out by S. 
Wolfram is of no help on this matter. (I call it the "tungsten book", 
first because "Wolfram" is German for "tungsten", and second because 
"tung sten" in Swedish means "heavy stone", and that book is a heavy 
stone indeed.
