For example, windows may be implemented with border characters on some
older displays, but shadowed lines on newer ones. Radio buttons on
old terminals look llike the old DOS Foxpro style, eg <Yes> or <No>
instead of nicely bordered buttons. Worse, the accelerator key can't
be underlined, so the user can't see what letter was assigned as the
accelerator key. :(
But I still like to use them, especially for stuff like my standard
message box pop-ups. On PCs using CA or on InfoWindow displays etc,
they look great. On older terminals they just look like Foxpro but
without the accelerator underlined.
