Abstract

All-points-addressable printers have special advantages that are not available with fixed location printers or impact printers. For example, in an ink jet or other all-points-addressable printer it is possible to perform a highlighting function merely by locating a spaced apart array of ink drops (picture elements (pels)) at predetermined locations.
