I'm using the package 'locfit' for nonparametric regression. This package

contains the function 'scb' to compute simultaneous confidence bands.

The variance of the data is unknown. Up to now I compute a fit with

'locfit'. Afterwards an estimate of the residual variance is computed by the

function 'rv'. The weights in the 'scb'-function are set 1/sigma^2 to

compute the confidence band.

Is this procedure correct or is there any other way to compute confidence

bands with unknown variance?

Thanks very much for any help you can offer.
