### Re: C43 bezel expected when?

Waaayyy back in spring 2020, Martin, Pauli, and I specified - after comparing vintage HPs and a Pantone card under Australian sun - yellow (130 PC) and blue (306 PC) for the WP43.

### Re: Show all digits of a huge integer

I fiddled a bit last night until the emulator randomly exited, so nothing concrete yet. The zero problem can be avoided by using FIX display and storing the digits in the fractional part or using integer mode with leading zeros enabled.

### Re: DM43/C43 emulator for MacOS

I just run make test at the top level and it all works. Not sure what the difference is since looks like it's doing the same commands.
