Thanks to everyone for the highly informative discussion and suggestions.
And just to complete the information, I recently upgraded from the
Trinitrons - I'm now using a pair of 24" Samsung T240HD LCD monitors.

Speaking of which...anyone interested in a pair of 21" Dell Ultrascan P1110
CRT monitors?  They're absolutely wonderful monitors, if a bit on the bulky
side.  They've been great, but it's time to send them back out
into the world. (I have three, but I'm holding on to one for a future
project.)  Free, free, free...
