Insertion of a feature into a 0 degree phase area in a phase shift mask helps compensate for image imbalance due to phase shifting. The feature can be a subresolution feature and can vary in size to compensate for image imbalance. The feature can be combined with other image imbalance techniques such as undercutting phase shift areas and/or biasing lines.
