This invention relates to a method for accessing and displaying a second alphanumeric string correlated with a first alphanumeric string in an interactive system. The system comprises a keyboard, a display, a memory for storing formatted information, and an intercoupling processor. The formatted information includes a concordance of first and second alphanumeric strings.

The method steps comprise (1) generating alphanumeric strings on the display, at least one string of which is highlighted; (2) cursoring to one of the displayed and highlighted strings; and (3) responsive to selective keystroke actuation on the keyboard, accessing the concordance in memory in order to obtain the second string as indexed by the cursored, highlighted first string, and replacing the generated strings with the accessed second string on the display.
