%X We develop two methods for obtaining a confidence band for the cumulative distribution
function (CDF) based on a simple random sample from a finite population of known size.
The methods are exact when the population contains no repeated values, and conservative
otherwise. The first method consists of using a Kolmogorov-Smirnov-type band, and
the second method consists of combining together separate, equal-coverage-probability
confidence intervals for each ordered population value. Confidence bands obtained using
either method yield simultaneous confidence intervals for all ordered population values.
Coverage probabilities are computed using a new recursive algorithm.
