Main point of this invention Disclosed is a Japanese input method which restricts the code range of input characters to JIS X 0208 (1st level and 2nd level), 3rd level, or 4th level, when inputting JIS X0213 characters. It also displays variant characters as input candidates with the information about the code range at the time of a code input. Problems solved by the invention The code range of input characters is expanded by support of JIS X 0213. However, there is a case when the code range of input characters should be restricted, because a problem may happen in data compatibility with the system which is not supporting JIS X 0213.
