Do direct-view TVs really have better picture quality than rear-projection TVs?

    Depends on the actual TVs concerned.

    Generally speaking though, direct view CRT TVs tend to give a slightly sharper picture with better blacks and provide a greater viewing 'sweet spot'.

    Of course, the downside is that 36" is the limit to which the majority of manufacturers will go. RP screen sizes of 6" to 8" larger can be had for the same money as 36" regular CRTs.

    I read that direct-view TVs seem sharper because they are smaller. Is this true?

    That will be part of the reason, although the fact you see the screen direct and not as a secondary image is also a factor.
