Teletext has some very specific restrictions on how colors and characters can be used, i.e. you need to insert blank characters that change the color and subcharset. The CebraText tool (for Windows) downloadable at http://lektrolab.beigerecords.com/ctinst.exe implements these correctly.
I want to give it a go. I participated in something similar a few years ago, on belgian TV.

Well it seems the Cebra Teletext editor doesn't run on 64-bit systems, gotta try it on my netbook then.

The entries are now on-line (and on-air): http://www.yle.fi/tekstitv/html/P525_01.html
Woop, browsed through a bunch of the entries. Interesting.
Can these be downloaded as say an MPEG2TS stream? I suspect I'll have to deal with teletext at work in the future and it'd be nice to have these as samples :)
