        I finally found an entry at NEC's website for the monitor to
doublecheck my memory on it...had to dig quite a bit! According to
NEC's site it will do:

        QuickSpecs MultiSync
                                                         Model JC-1401P3A

                          Introduced October, 1985
September 1987

                           Screen 14.0-inch (13.0"
viewable image size)

                           CRT 0.31 mm Dot Trio

                           Max. Resolution 800 x 560 _at_ 56Hz

                           Horizontal Freq 15.5 kHz to 35 kHz

        I at one point had both this monitor and the greyscale
version of it. The Multisync GS was considerably cheaper than it's
color counterpart at the time and had a really sharp image and would
still do both the digital and analog inputs.
