Eight dots per character - enough to express the punctuation and so on
which is required to code - as opposed to six-dot displays, which are
enough for grade 2 english and so on, but cant express other characters.

As for the size itself, I doubt I can afford 80 columns - last time I
looked, the prices were somewhat prohibitive, even for single-line 40
column displays.
