You should probably read fortune(117) and fortune(234) (and possibly some of the original discussions that lead to the fortunes).  Reading the help page for the SnowsPenultimateNormalityTest function (TeachingDemos package) may also help.  If you are happy with the plots, but still feel the need for a "test" of some sort, then you should investigate using the vis.test function in the TeachingDemos package.

Hope this helps,
