```Dear Mathematica users,

thanks for your latest response. I noticed that I should have excluded
"normalising" the labels of the y-axis as an option in my original e-mail.
This is not what I am looking for.

More interesting, I have contacted R Abraham, who asked a similar
question like me about five years ago (without finding any answer on the
web).

He noticed that ...
there's a package
on MathSource called MongoArray which purports to do this:

http://www.mathsource.com/Content/Enhancements/Graphics/2D/0208-538

I have tried MongoArray and it does, cum grano salis, what I need.

Thomas.
