Diagonally across the screen itself. Unlike CRTs, none of the quoted size is hidden behind the bezel.

CRTs and LCD's are different. With an LCD the Screen size is the viewable area where in CRT's you have a screen size then a smaller Viewable area.

So.

15" LCD = 17" CRT

17" LCD = 19" CRT

19" LCD = 21" CRT
