Thanks, but no luck. There are no labels (it's a laptop screen), and the Dell product page<http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?sku=R6313>doesn't provide any useful information. Too bad MonitorWorld doesn't allow indexing <http://monitorworld.com/robots.txt>, or it would actually be searchable (their search sucks). -- Victor Engmark Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur - What is said in Latin, sounds profound _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
