Abstract

Since displays are becoming very small and compact, such as in pagers or watches for example, a method is need- ed to enhance their readability, particularly in a dimly lit area. This method suggests the use of a multicolor E.L. panel to illuminate different portions of a liquid crystal display, in different colors, to enhance its readability by drawing the eye's attention to its different portions.
