PMFJI.  Isn't this a correct definition?  I am not a professional statistician,
but this is the definition given in 3 different dictionaries and pretty well
compares with the descriptions in the 6 or so statistics books I have sitting
on my shelf.  It seems to describe what I learned to call a "frequency
histogram", as opposed to a "density histogram".

histogram n : a bar chart representing a frequency distribution; heights of the
bars represent observed frequencies
