All bulb manufacturers made duplo-bulbs, they may have been called 
differently, can't remember, but Philips was by no way the sole 
Yellow lights were popular but I seem to remember mandatory in France 
only for a long time even until somewhere in the 80's I think. This was 
to prevent blinding and a better contrast in unfavourable weather 
conditions following the believes of the time.
