My plasma monitor (by Panasonic) has a vga input (as well as component,
svideo, and composite), so that's what I am using. I guess I should have
had the tv on when I took that picture. But the fonts are just fine,
actually they're great. For a little while I was using svideo and the fonts
looked OK on that, too.
