Here is what a nice test page which @Cat made for looks like in a browser which doesn’t support ANSI colour escape codes. This is the new client for iOS.

If you go to Gopher://baud.baby/1/test with @solderpunk ‘s lovely client, this renders in nice BBS style colour.

So going forward, it probably is good form to make maps select for regular or colour. I shall try! mastodon.sdf.org/media/D4rLeij

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
@solderpunk makes the awesome -1 client.
I asked for ANSI colour escape code support on the Gopher email list a while ago and was poopooed by most...
The purists judged it couldn’t be done - that such a notion was an abomination. A heresy! 😥

But he did it; thanks to Solderpunk’s VF-1, is alive!
Mwahahahahahahaaaaa... 🎃🌈

This is seriously the best phlog reader out there, too. Try it!

Vertrauen is the stately flagship for the Synchronet bbs server.
Joy upon joy, they provide direct access to many of the goodies on offer, including real time DOVE-net, Fidonet, and fsxnet boards.
I was pleased to discover these fora rather active, and with discussions.
