Should add PAL and uh, the other one.--mahuti 23:26, 8 March 2006 (EST)

Added brief summary of PAL and NTSC if thats what you meant.... --Silver 11:15, 9 March 2006 (EST)

H:High resolution

The glossary says: "A monitor with a refresh rate of 31.5kHz". I assume this is the horizontal refresh rate? (similar question for "S: Standard resolution"). Perhaps the entry should be "high resolution monitor" because I was expecting something along the lines as "a screen resolution that is at least 640 pixels wide and 480 pixels high.". Can anyone elaborate on this? Felsir 01:45, 10 March 2006 (EST)

The low/medium.high res entires have presumably been added in terms the "video game" world. That is, there are only 3 significatnly different horizontal sync rates. In terms of arcade games, "Low/Standard resolution" games have a horzontal sync rate 15.75 kHz, "Medium resolution" have one of around 25 kHz, and "High resolution" tends to 31Khz - which is basically 640x480 VGA. I think the term "horizontal sync rate" is more accurate than "refresh rate" as this typically means the vertical refresh rate. --Silver 06:02, 10 March 2006 (EST)

A much smarter way to create a glossary would be to just create a new Category called "Glossary" and then add any page you want to the "Glossary category" using the following wiki code: [[Category:Glossary]] at the bottom of any page you want in the glossary -- Doc- 19:27, 5 July 2006 (EDT)
