We propose that strong fluorescence in conjugated polymers requires a dipole-allowed state to be the lowest singlet. Hückel theory for para-conjugated phenyl rings yields an extended, topologically one-dimensional ?-system with increased alternation, states localized on each ring, and charge-transfer excitations between them. Exact Pariser�Parr�Pople results and molecular spectra for oligomers support a topological contribution and a lowest dipole-allowed singlet in phenylene polymers.
