Abstract

See full text

A system for the generation of composite ideographic characters is disclosed. Composite characters are generated by the placement of basic characters which are stored in memory into basic layouts which have at least two selection areas which divide the display area of a display device. The basic layouts are generated by the selection of one of a plurality of basic layouts stored in memory. The basic characters are placed in a selection area of a basic layout by selection of one of a plurality of basic characters stored in memory. Basic layouts may be nested within the active selection area of a current layout. Scaling of basic character size and location and basic layout size and location is accomplished by use of stored compression coefficients and the origin of each selection area of the basic layouts.
