    Abstract: A computer system for rendering text is provided. A keyboard is used to enter characters into the computer system. A character code corresponding to each entered character is generated. A particular font is chosen from a font table stored in memory. The font table contains a number of different fonts, with each font having a number of glyph indexes corresponding to a number of different glyphs. A character can have a plurality of different glyph indexes for a particular font.
