Abstract

Dynamic character formation based, for example, on dot matrix manipulations usually yields a normal character 10, as shown in Fig. 1. It would, however, be advantageous to form an enhanced character 12, as shown in Fig. 2, for use in word processing or a like application. Enhancement of characters formed by dot matrix write electrodes or print heads has typically been achieved through the use of grey scale schemes and multiple pass techniques, both of which utilize rather sophisticated algorithms that are costly to implement or time consuming to run.
