This article relates to the simple concept of utilizing multiple keystrokes to produce valid characters even though one of the multiple keystrokes may produce an invalid character; however, when the multiple keystrokes are combined, the result is a valid character. This situation typically occurs when a text processing terminal is functioning as an emulation of a data processing terminal. Thus, compatibility with the data processing data stream is required. The keyboard for the text processing equipment may contain characters which are invalid with respect to the character set used in the data processing data stream.
