In the old days of the XT and CGA, what text modes were supported?

I have a Wyse PC+ - an oddball XT class machine - that could run DOS in
several weird text modes (96 and 132 column, I think). I remember using it
this way for some stuff, but often certain programs would barf (Norton
Commander being one of them).

Were these modes standard?

I still have the PC+, and I doubt I will ever get rid of it for some
reason. It is a pretty weird machine, and I don't think many were made.
