If your really worried just shoot it at 18 or 12fps. Personally I have had no problem with shooting LCDs with video (29.97 and 24p) so it should not be an issue.
I have shot an LCD screen (Dell 2000FP) with an Eclair ACL S16mm camera with a 172 degree shutter at 24fps and all was fine.

The concerns that initially came to mind were:
-Black level. Will the monitor have enough contrast that I can expose the image normally (or perhaps a bit over exposed) and still have the blacks black.
-Resolution. With text, this will probably be a greater concern to you Kali (I'm assuming that's your real name, you need to follow this board's rules on display names & signatures). Are they any concerns about what size monitor should be used to film off of? I was considering finding someone with a good size HD television and outputting from my computer to the monitor's dvi input. I would imagine resolution issues would be especially important in 16mm.
Good luck with your shoot, please post your results here so we can benefit from your experience.
