I used a ruler.  It was in my desk.  I don't have a nice enough monitor
to worry about.  It was hard to do because of the back lighting and the
curve. I would have liked to use a piece of 35mm film, soft and
translucent.  I don't really need it to be so accurate, but mine was
really really off.  My squares look square now.  I thought it was an
illusion from the window decoration, but it wasn't.

But I believe the concern was of monitor surfaces. 

I like to hear of international standards, also.
