Scanning question (Is destruction of old tech docs a moral crime?)

Yes, the variable sized dots was a significant upgrade from the oversized 
fixed dots.

The oversized fixed dots (LJII) were a significant upgrade from the 
undersized fixed dots (LJ, LJ+), and made it possible to finally get a 
solid black.  THAT had been a major problem.   See the illustrations of 
text screens in Sybex books 30 years ago.  I could not get acceptable 
quality for white on black text until the LJII.

The undersized fixed dots were a significant upgrade from the previous dot 
matrix printers.

ALL great sellers!
