They supposedly have complete emulation of VT320 and VT420. However, in
practice, I've found that on many OS's codes that work fine on a real
VT420 don't work well at all on a VT520. It's been quite a while since
I've done it, but if you're interested, I can hook my VT520 up again and
work out which ones were pissing me off so much again.
