I saw some hi-res pictures fifteen years ago in a computer magazine, who claimed the pictures was from a vidotex service. As I had learned the regular graphics on that system were those 2x3 block graphics in eight colours, like teletext, I really didn't believe the pictures. But maybe those were from a system that used this BTX device, and in that case, was that an extended protocol over the regular videotex graphics? I'd better go home and dig through those magazines to see if they mention this. /Anders Carlsson - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
