Positioning of Top- or End-Inhibited Character

The present method is capable of appropriately positioning Top-Inhibited Characters and End-Inhibited Characters without repositioning. The Top-Inhibited Character means a character which is not to be located at the beginning of the line. The End-Inhibited Character means a character which is not to be located at the end of the line. Examples of the Top-Inhibited Character are as follows. . , : ; ? ! ) ] ' " Examples of the End Inhibited

Character are as follows. o " ( [ @ $ The present method considers the character at the following four locations (Fig. 1): (1) a character at the end of the current line

(referred to as "CE");

(2) a character before CE (referred to as "CE-1");

(3) a character at the top of the next line (referred

to as "CT");

(4) a character next to CT (referred to as "CT+1"). First, the present method sees the type of the character at the location of CE, CE-1, CT and CT+1, and

then moves the character at CE to the next line or

carries back the character at CT to the current line in

accordance with a table shown in Fig. 2. Referring to

Fig. 2: "T" indicates Top-Inhibited Character; "E" indicates End-Inhibited Character; "X" indicates a character which is neither Top-Inhibited Character nor End-Inhibited Character; " X, T " indicates either "X" or "T"; " X, E " indicates either "X" or "E"; "FORWARD" means moving the character at CE to the next line; and "BACKWARD" means carrying back the character at...
