   A year or two ago Steve Loboyko (sp?) posted several messages here about
the same topic. He found that the spots were mold and were between the CRT
and the safety glass. He was able to take the safety glass off and clean
the mold out. I think he used acetone to dissolve the glue between the CRT
and safety shield. I suppose he found a way to re-apply the safefty glass
but I don't remember. You should be able to find more details in the
archives, If you can't then contact Steve and ask him about it.
