Special Character Input Method by Kana-Kanji Conversion Program

      Disclosed is a method for easy input of the special character,
such as KEISEN character using Japanese FEP(KANA-KANJI conversion
program) and its special dictionary.

      It is easily understandable that all the KEISEN components are
configured as 3 x 3 matrix like below.  In this method, each KEISEN
components is assigned to each TENKEY.  Vertical line "|" and
Horizontal line "-" could be assigned to "/"(slash key) and "-"(minus
key) each in TENKEY also.

And dictionary to achieve this conversion is as follows;

This method has the following merits.

1.  User does not have to remember of the "YOMI" of each KEISEN
    component.

2.  Only one character input for "YOMI".

3.  Very human-centric user interface in the meaning of direct
    manipulation on keyboard by imaging the shape of KEISEN
    component.
