This datatype allows you to view CEPT-3 format frames and carousels
(commonly known as videotex, teletext, viewdata or prestel frames)
It only supports full frames (960 byte file of 40x24 characters)
and carousels of full frames.  You can create carousels by joining
single frames together with the JOIN command.  Carousels MUST have
the extension ".car" to be detected by the datatype.  Frames MUST
have the extension ".bin".  As of v1.5, EP1 and EPX format files
are also supported.  These are detected on teh file header so can
have any extension.

It requires the MtA font (included).  This is a modified version of
the MtA font from the PstView archive, where I have changed the
font to the UK character set.  If you need the accented characters,
you might want to use the original instead.

Known bugs and limitations

Conceal, flash and steady are not supported.  These codes will be
ignored (concealed text will be printed as if it had been revealed)

There are two descriptors as Datatypes picks some files up as binary
and others as ASCII, so you need a descriptor for each type.
Which is ASCII and which is binary is arbitrary and the author can't
remember five minutes after recreating them.

Most of the icons are by Ken "Ken's Icons" Lester.

As usual, I can and will not accept responsibility for any damage,
loss of data etc incurred through use of this software.  This archive
is provided "as-is" without warranty of any kind and all use is at
your own risk.

Please check the PGP signature in the Aminet readme against the
archive to ensure it has not been tampered with.
