remember that a 22" CRT doesn't have 22" viewable, a 20" LCD has probably marginally larger viewable area .

Can be very true. Many CRTs are obnoxiously smaller than their selling size, big fat borders going around the screen `n stuff.

To state the obvious also, a 22" widescreen anything is going look smaller than a 22" `squarer`screen, but is more nature a view for the eyes.
