               Brian S. Petrucci (appellant) appeals from the final                   
          rejection of claims 18-20 and from the examiner’s refusal to                
          allow claims 1-7 and 11-17 as amended by an amendment filed                 
          subsequent to the final rejection.  These constitute all the                
          claims remaining in the application.  We reverse.
