```Roger,

Thanks, that information was exactly what I needed. I searched the
site for info, but spaced the email archives....won't make that mistake
again.

I believe this was discussed about two days ago -- check the archives
under the subject "density plot - beginner's question" -- and there were
some good answers.  Basically, the x and y vectors have to be increasing
and response or Level, as you call it, needs to be in the form of a matrix
of dimension length(x) by length(y).  If the response/Level is not in the
form of a matrix, you will need to smoooth or interpolate.
