I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner, you are not forgotten. It is just
that my second 8/e was much harder to reach than I had hoped for. (I'm
shipping out a set of computers that are in the way).
DOH! I just recalled.. I have pictures online, these are my machines:
As you see, the Type A, which I believe is older, has straight switch
position lines, no dividers and a "box" arround the switch.
The Type B has angled switch position lines, dividers, but no box
arround the switch.
Type B has noticably less saturated colors.
I can take better pictures of the Type B panel which is accessible, but
I'm not sure it will help.
