I have clear memory of cga but never knew about the composit thing
Similar composite technique is used on the Apple II as well, only that the Apple II had 16 real colors four years before the CGA (In 1977). On RGB Apple 2 monitor the colors look sharp, on composite TV set more colors were visible, due to the composite artifacts.
