    When refering to screen size am I right in thinking that screen width is the dimension thats quoted not the diagonal as in crt & rp tv's.

    You sure? I've been looking at screens today online and the specs lead me to believe that a 6ft screen is 6ft wide not 6ft diagonal.

    In my experience it varies, so it's best to be sure by asking the vendor.
