With wire matrix or character composition printers, it is often desira to mix printed character densities or sizes within a given print line. This may be done to create the effects of italicization or bold face, large upper case, smaller lower case, etc. In a specific printer of this sort, two printed character densities may be offered nominally at 10 characters per inch or 16.66 characters per inch.
