This is a tentative transcription of an imaginary ANSI-based web browser opening on my own deviantART
's author page.
It is not exactly what I'd have liked to submit for the ANSI contest, but scarce time resources forced me to take a more conservative approach, yet interesting since the careful watcher won't miss the "feedback" (or self-similar) effect generated by multiple instances of the same very web pages spawning one into anoter.
Entry for the official deviantART “Non-Existent” ASCII/ANSI
Text mode: 80x25x16 (8x16 font), VGA
Codepage: No. 437, Extended ASCII
Rendering: TundraDraw 0.5 ß1; old-style VGA emulation
Since the nature of the contest is strictly ANSI based, no alternative iCE colours, customized palette or font were used. If a deviantART page should be really rendered for MS-DOS text-mode screens (EGA/VGA), RGB/2 palette customization (allowing to choose the 16 displayable colours, both for foreground and background, among a total palette of 26
=64) and font customization (complete redrawal of the 256 ExtendedASCII bitmaps in 8x16-pixels grids) would be employed.
Even up to 512 simultaneously displayable characters (instead of only 256, sacrifying the 8 "hi-intensity" foreground colours) could be triggered: using all these three features altogether a careful and appealing text-mode rendering of almost any non-photographic-based webpage could be viewed in small windows (due to the maximum 80 characters per row limitation).
