I wouldn't take those frequencies to be _exact_. It's quite possible it's 
214.5 lines or something.

I think it has to be interlaced. That would then be about right for a 
400-line interlaced image. The video timing is contorlled by a 6845, 
which is quite capable of interlaced scanning, of course.

If it wasn;t interlaced, to get the same vertical resolution, either the 
vertical frequency would haev to be halved (which I don't believe for an 
instant -- did _any_ machine have a vertical sync frequency less than 
50Hz?) or the horizontal would haev to be doubled. From waht I remember 
of the hoprixontal output stage, I think that's unlikely too.
