This article describes an efficient method for selecting an appropriate template by utilizing the priorities assigned to templates. The priority of a template is determined by its frequency of use, and is dynamically changed. The system manages templates so that those with high priorities are resident in the main memory. If the priority of a resident template becomes lower than that of a non-resident template, it is ejected and another template is loaded. Therefore, the system can read with a minimum overhead a document containing any number of distinct fonts. (Image Omitted)
