I rather thought they used ASCII text, sometimes strained through ANSI for
color, but ASCII was the primary character set/map.

IBM had a standard for text based user interfaces. Systems Architecure

Many of the DOS6.2 programs exibit this user interface, like "Edit" and
perhaps "Qbasic"

What was that called??
