Abstract

The quality of a displayed character on a raster CRT display is enhanced in many instances by shifting the positions of some of the dots horizontally in selected fine increments within the axial limits of their coarse grid spaces where such action is necessary to eliminate "staircasing" and thereby provide smoother contours of curved and diagonal lines.
