Many communication devices are required to dis- play alphanumeric messages. Some of these devices, especially portable ones such as radios, telephones and pagers, have necessarily small displays due to size and weight constraints. Consequently, only a fraction of the total message can be displayed at one time, and longer messages must be accessed by "scrolling" or "paging" through the entire message. This requires the user to repeatedly press buttons in order to scroll or page through the entire message. Message presentation is fragmented and awkward.
