AbstractAn electronic dictionary, in which a highlight style storage section in a ROM pre-stores display data of a variety of styles for the highlight display, such as a solid shade, an underline, and a frame all in red. When a user selects an item for highlight display through an input section, a central processing unit allocates a style that has been used least frequently to the selected item, and synthesizes display data associated with the allocated style. Subsequently, at least either the title or attribute information of the selected item (i.e., the resulting synthesized display data) is displayed on a liquid crystal display section.
