I just did the edge thing with sealant for the 9845 CRT I did a couple
of years back-looks fine, although I did have the same reservations
initially. It probably depends on the 'darkness' of the faceplate
whether a filler is needed or otherwise. I left a gap about 20 cm long
top and bottom just in case I had trapped any moisture etc in there,
but should go back (bugger of a job just getting at the CRT in the
9845) and seal it up some day when it's fairly warm.
