Re: A standard dating back to 1987?

Yes, I remember those days, but I have no idea of the timescale. I do remember, though, having monitors with post-"Standard Definition" resolutions about 15-20 years before people started buying HD TV's.

Indeed - I remember reading about the awesome new tellyboxes that were going to be able to display 720 horizonal lines...I was reading the story on a rather elderly monitor running at 1280x1024 and wondering either what the fuss was about, or what the misprint was
