I believe this is an anti-reflection and/or polarization coating.
I've found that alcohol-based cleaners work better on it than anything
else.  Using a non-woven, low-lint cloth to dry it after applying the
cleaner works best.

We used to have these two-pack (wet/dry) cleaner wipes at a couple of
places I've worked that were best for cleaning them.

One of my friends keeps a post-it not on his monitor's bezel--"DO NOT
TOUCH SCREEN WITH FINGERS"--'cause he hates fingerprints on his
monitor so much.
