To make this easy to answer, I will put my doubts into four succinct questions:

First, which one standardly goes on the vertical axis: the observed or theoretical values?

Secondly, does one put probabilities, or the values, on the axes? If probabilities, are the observed probabilities just calculated as per a frequency table?

Thirdly (and this depends on the answer to the previous question), are the scales linear, a concatenation of logarithmic scales, or what?

Fourthly, how does one calculate the theoretical value that goes to a given observed value?

Thanks for answering any (or all) of these.
