Let's not get sloppy here, there is (was) 5-hole (Telex) and 7-hole (TWX,
later renamed Telex II) paper tape.

Back in the early eighties, I had to hunt down an owner of an actual Telex
unit to transliterate a spool of 5-hole to text, so that I could have one
of the secretaries punch that onto 7-hole tape.  Early--manual--transcoding :)
