Abstract

Fig. 1 shows two 8-dot wide by 16-dot high character cells A, A' placed in 10-dot by 24-dot fields B, B'. Some upper-case characters require diacritic marks, such as the diaresis at C, placed above the primary character at D. Previous displays have shortened such characters, so that both the primary shape and the diacritic could be contained within the basic cell A.
