Intuitively I knew you were right about this Mike. The extreme values
not the quantiles.
When I run it in version 8 without the weight, I get the same numbers as in
Version 6 for the quantiles.
Version 6 produces the same quantiles with or without the weight.

Well, it is "correct" but I don't think it is what they wanted!
Also, PCTLDEF, in v8.2, is inoperative when using weights.
Does that mean that V 8.2 behaves like 6.12 when using weights?
Maybe I should just upgrade to 8.2?
