Some good links about ergonomics, including monitors:
Microsoft
US Department of Labour
ErgoCanada (I realize this site doesn't look great, but their info is good, and they're a Canadian company that I've had fantastic experiences with.)
Mars...i read the links that you kindly provided. i, too view my monitor the same as you and find it very comfortatable. i practice the majority of suggestions that have been listed. Chair..check, desk check, keyboard check, mouse check, monitor position check. recently i downloaded Flex on my Dell XPS 720 which i use for just surfing the net etc. and i find it helps a great deal with eye strain\migraines. the only time i run into deep doodoo is when i'm gaming on my Dell XPS730X and am involved in a heavy-duty battle where the game is moving at high speed for a long period of time...mouse , keyboard, my body... the involuntary ducking\ jumping etc.
