Yes you should be able to replace it with the liteon LED.. the original one is actually also rated @20mA.
Dont know what the test current signifies, but it is not the maximum (peak) current (which is 140mA, not that anything above 20mA is useful).

ok! thanks muchly.

I decided against
http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDet ... TL1CHKGKNN
because it has clear Lens Color/Style: which is going to be EXTREMELY tough to identify which one is which until i light them up or they get lit up

I switch to this one instead
http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDet ... TL1CHJGTNN
which is green tinted plastic lens
