Is that table right?
Shouldn't the values in the first column always be higher than the values in the second?
Maybe I misunderstood--was this the performance of the ones that had the highest

I'm not sure whether this was intended to be a demonstration of how
VL screens have done or how a VL screen WWL scheme would have done.
