The beauty of NAPLPS was that supported variable precision, so that the
number of bits you want or what you can display are presented.  Unfortunately
it has never been utilized to take advantage of that capabilitiy.  That
would be wonderful for the web.  Implemented wisely, it would give the GL
library a run for it's money, and give us real graphical objects.

Got any good NAPLPS creation software?  I might find a student to prototype
an interpretor in Java.
