No, in the above I was just further emphasizing what this thread was originally about. OK, fair enough. This discussion started out of someone posting a picture...

You'll note that I used the word "standards" (emphasis on plural here). The point I'm making here is not *which* particular character set we're talking about, but the fact that the statement "ANSI has nothing to do with characters displayed on the screen" is false. ANSI character sets (again, note the plural) *do* have something to do with the characters displayed on the screen. Other ANSI standards *also* have something to do with cursor positioning and colors displayed on the screen, but the statement that ANSI has nothing to do with the characters displayed is simply false.

I think you are confusing me with someone else. I never mentioned IBM Codepage 437. I never even mentioned a specific ANSI character set. My comment was that the statement "ANSI has nothing to do with characters displayed on the screen" is false. Nothing more, really.

My apologeties to the pedantic ones out there. Does it really matter which set? The bottom line is that the statement "ANSI has nothing to do with characters displayed on the screen" is still false. There *are* ANSI character sets. The fact that there are more than one means that the statement "ANSI has nothing to do with characters displayed on the screen" is even *more* false.

Any one that shows that the statment "ANSI has nothing to do with characters displayed on the screen" is false.

The fact that there is at least one '"ANSI character sets" in existence' shows that the statement "ANSI has nothing to do with characters displayed on the screen" is false. Thank you for proving my point.

Which still suggests that the statement "ANSI has nothing to do with characters displayed on the screen" is false.

Randall Hyde I'm not the one inventing these standards; I'm just trying to explain how they work in relation to each other. :) But if you feel someone might still...

I'm not refering to any particular character set. I'm simply claiming that the statement "ANSI has nothing to do with characters displayed on the screen" is false. Do you disagree with this claim? Cheers, Randy Hyde
