Abstract. In this paper we prove that the discontinuity set of any bijective function from $\left[ a,b\right[ $ to $\left[ c,d\right] $ is infinite. We then proceed to give a gallery of examples which shows that this is the best we can expect, and that it is possible that any intermediate case exists.

We conclude with an example of a (nowhere continuous) bijective function which exhibits a dense graph in the rectangle $\left[ a,b\right[ \times \left[ c,d\right] .$
