I find a good rule of thumb is to set a CRT to one step less than the
max rated non-interlaced resolution. (Interlaced resolution ratings
are completely uninteresting.) And I set the refresh rate to the
lowest supported value >= 70 Hz.

If you use VGA extension cord, this becomes a whole lot more
important, but even without those, it seems like a good idea.

On the other hand, for high resolution displays, LCD panels are a
really good answer. 2000 by 1500 is available today (from Apple, at
least), and you don't get any blurring if you use a digital

Hm... I saw a 2k by 2k monochrome display about 20 years ago -- a
plasma panel (PLATO style orange dots) 4x the usual size.
