    I think that I've commented that from the schematic, the MDA seems to be unnecessarily complicated, with several lines just trailing off into nowhere. You can even see the unterminated traces on a Rev 0 MDA.

    Here's something similar: a CGA card sold in Greece, with a monster 32 KB character generator, and some extra wiring/connectors (probably to bank-switch the contents). Not multilingual; it just has five(!) different Greek encodings on it.

    The MDA seems to have a fairly troubled development cycle and/or some spec changes in development - there's a lot of things odd about those cards. Some early models even have some interesting secrets if you've got the right sort of display...
