At a recent STC DC Chapter meeting, we had an ergonomics/physical therapist
person come in to discuss proper posture/position/alignment of your keyboard,
monitor, and chair. She suggested that the top line of the monitor be
"just below eye level" and directly in front of you (so you don't have to
twist to one side to see or type). About 20 degrees sounds OK, but (if you
take the therapist's advice) you probably wouldn't want your terminal to be
much lower than that.

Janet said:
Their advice is to make
sure that your monitor is at a 20 degree angle below eye level.
