Abstract

PURPOSE:To eliminate the need for providing italic font data in an internal memory and to enable a memory capacity to be saved correspondingly, by a method wherein information of inclination as italic letters is imparted for every upright font letter. CONSTITUTION:When upright letters are inclined to be italic, optimum inclination information are imparted to respective letters to be inclined differently from each other. Each one bit of the inclination information corresponds to a lengthwise font data group. In a positive logic, the inclination information is so made that, at 1 bit, upper bit groups from the 1 bit shift rightwards by the amount of 1 bit to the lower bit groups. For example, if font data 2 is longitudinally divided into blocks by 3 dots, 3 dots, and 2 dots from the lower position and the inclination is imparted so that the blocks shift rightwards respectively to the lower blocks by the amount of 1 dot, the inclination information is represented by 01001000(1). In this manner, italic font data can be formed from upright font data, which eliminates the need for providing the italic font data in an internal memory.
