Does anyone know how a manufacturer measures the screen for TVs?

I have read that manufacturers use the vertical to measure screens. Is this correct?

Actually, for the measurements that you read in terms of the size of a television, it's a diagonal measurement. You would take a measurement from a bottom corner to the opposite top corner to get the size of your screen. I used to work in the TV department for a electronics store so we'd have to explain this to customers quite a bit.
