Liquid Crystal Line Flaring Character Format

Line flaring phenomena observed in liquid crystal displays is used to improve the appearance of conventional segmented character displays.

Thin line segments show up effectively as much wider line segments due to the "flaring" effect. By interweaving thin line segments 10,12 of a plurality of wider line segments 14,16, preferably in a "Greek spiral" configuration, the ends of each illuminated segment tend to show up as squared off, rather than mitered as with conventional segmented characters.

The energized dots in a dot matrix also will tend to "flare" together with attention to the design of the matrix.
