What about the X-servers that are included in the Pathworks product line? As an
educational site you should have relatively low cost access to both the DOS and
Mac versions. And their use would not preclude providing character cell
terminal access to those users who didn't have enought "horsepower" in their
desktop machines to run MacX or eXcursion.

Or maybe you are already doing this for your "power" users and just need
something for the MacPlus-and/or-VT100-afflicted....:-)
