Abstract

Column separator marks for data entry on a CRT terminal are displayed as dots in the lower corners of each character position, instead of single vertical lines as in U.S. Patent 4,146,879. Also, character underscore s are segmented instead of continuous when both column separators and underscore are present in a display field.
