If you have a choice of emulations, try almost anything but wyse-50.
The Wyse-50 is particularly brain-dead regarding video attributes.
Wyse-60 is better, and ANSI probably the best (if anybody can figure
out what's true ANSI :-).
The Wyse-50 requires ``magic cookie'' video attribute which takes a
visible space on each side of the field making programming decent
displays somewhat difficult. The only way around the cookies is to
use their ``protected'' mode which doesn't take a space, but only
allows a single mode, reverse-video or dim.
The wyse-60 emulation is better because it doesn't require the
cookies, but the arrow keys present problems because left-arrow
produces the same ctrl-H as the backspace which makes it a bit
difficult to do some things.

corrupt the youthful mind, and generally to scandalize one's uncles.
