Default Someone with a light meter - Help!

I'm working towards building my own softbox to house compact flourescent bulbs. I'm suspecting that, unlike incandescent bulbs, the CFLs don't emit as much light from the top as they do from the sides. This would impact the bulb placement significantly if true.

Someone with a light meter - please measure the light levels say 12" from the top of a CFL and 12" to the side and let us know what you found.
