VHO Ballast, normal Bulbs

Hi Everyone:

Last weekend I was thumbing through a recent version of FAMA(forget 
which one) and read an article on lighting.  The author had spoken 
with all the major electronic VHO ballast manufacturers, all but 
IceCap denied that the following would work.

What he tried was running standard bulbs on the VHO ballasts, there 
was a short, vague explanation as why this would work, I didn't pay 
all that much attention.  The article was also a little void of hard 

The conclusion was that the normal bulb was an economical choice over 
the VHO bulb when ran on a VHO Ballast.  Light output was just 
slightly lower than that of a VHO bulb!

I realize that there may be some safety concerns while doing this, or 
maybe not, I really don't know.  But I'm curious if anyone on the 
list has tried this.
