http://davidmlane.com/hyperstat/z_table.html

Just enter the mean and sd, and then click on the suitable "between", "below" etc with the given values.

(To my way of thinking, I really see no difference between using the traditional use of tables, graphs, or charts for these kind of problems and this particular little program.)
