I've not used Gareth's software, but Termi/Termi2 and Communicator (both 
from Specialist software Services and marketed by Computer Concepts) do 
a pretty good VT52 and VT100 emulation, respectively.  Communicator does 
VT52 as well as VT100, actually.

I can't remember what Uniterm does.  Ignore BeebTel and Commstar; the 
Sussex Workstation ROM isn't bad (and IIRC also attempts a Tek 4010), 
YorkTerm is a subset of VT100 and rather York-specific, and the ROM 
version of Kermit is fairly dumb.  I've got a TVI terminal ROM if you 
want IBM compatibility ;-)  And a few others.
