     Recently, I saw a lighting display for OTT-LITE in Builder's Square
(i.e., a mega DIY home center). OTT-LITE has a line of full spectrum
fluorescent tubes as well as a screw-in full spectrum compact fluorescent that
fits a standard incandescent fixture. It is 17 watts, CRI 91, 5500 kelvin.
Lumen output is probably similar to a 75 watt incandescent.
The OTT-LITE web page is http://www.ott-lite.com/mainline.html
Their phone number is 800.842.8848, and they may sell direct if you can't find
it locally.

FWIW, Mark.
