A pair of plate structures (40 and 44), such as a baseplate structure and a faceplate structure of a flat-panel display, are sealed to each other by first attaching the plate structures to each other, typically at multiple attachment locations, in a non-vacuum environment. The plate structures are then hermetically sealed to each other, typically through an outer wall (44) or/and typically by gap jumping, in a vacuum environment.
1. A method comprising the steps of:attaching a first plate structure to a second plate structure through attaching means positioned at least partially between the plate structures while the plate structures are in a non-vacuum environment, the attaching means being spaced laterally apart from an outer wall mounted over a specified one of the plate structures and having a sealing edge that defines a sealing location with the other of the plate structures such that the outer wall lies between the plate structures; and subsequently hermetically sealing the...
