The CE02 Spec is a TEST specification, the same as FCC Class B, except it is
more consumer oriented in that it requires lower levels of emission and
susceptability.  The CE seal is normally listed in the advertising and was
printed on the outside of the shipping box for the Mitsubishi Diamond Pro
87TXM.  I researched it on the net before purchasing Mail Order.  My wife
has a 19 in Sony in the other room, that is also very clean and have never
heard a peep from it either.  Both use the non-shadow mask type of tube
construction (you can see two very faint horizontal lines when viewing a
white background).

I would did around through every specification after living through the
noisy monitor I had for several years.  It was a very old 1991 13 in

Wendell, is conformance with this spec required in order to put the CE seal
on a monitor?  Put another way, can one be sure that any computer that
shows the CE seal has met this standard?  Or do you have to go digging in
the instruction book, specs, etc?
