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.

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.
"Teletext" is the binary mode one, "Videotex" is text mode.

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

As usual, I can and will not accept responsibility for any damage,
