Hello Ian,

The original text in the report was about ten times longer. It was cut
at the typographic apostrophe (in “don’t”) in the sentence “LCD
monitors don’t have the same physical response as CRT monitors, but
computer LCD monitors emulate the CRT response to display values
similarly to CRT monitors.”.

Kind regards,
