Abstract

Gas panel display 20 has a plurality of vertical conductors 24 and a plurality of zig-zag conductors 22, replacing the conventional horizontal conductors. In this configuration any cell 7:7 has an equal distance c to any of six adjacent cells 6:6, 6:7, 6:8, 7:8, 8:7, and 7:6. With this configuration, a diagonal stroke has the same relative light intensity as a vertical or horizontal stroke.
