Wow, that helps explain things a bit.  Wonder why, if they were meant to be 
installed vertically, they wouldn't have screened the legends to be read 
that way.
Anyway, that insight might simplify things for me.  I hadn't thought of 
mounting them that way. I have a couple pieces of rack mounting rails that I 
could cut and mount horizontally in my 19" rack and everything would fit 
(hopefully) just right.

Thanks for the response, Mike.
