After reading the responses to your posting I think Scott
gave the most concise answer. Just keep in mind that as you
tightly couple the true and complement lines together (by
minimizing the spacing between the t/c pair) then your
characteristic impedance will shift downward unless you
narrow your lines to compensate.
