Abstract

The xerographic nonimpact printer described in U.S. Patent 4,000,486 includes a character font, comprising a given number of alphanumeric characters, which is stored in memory and can be accessed to produce pages of desired alphanumeric text. In this type of xerographic printer a laser beam selectively impacts a photoconductor to "write" a document's white background area by such impact.
