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.
