character cellA matrix of dots used to form a single character on a display screen or printer. For example, an 8x16 cell is made up of 16 rows of eight dots. Character cells are displayed and printed contiguously; therefore the design of each letter, digit or symbol within the cell must include surrounding blank space. See character based.
