              Appeal No. 94-1549                                                                                        
              Application 07/945,540                                                                                    



              of appellants that “claim 2 was to recite a remover ‘consisting essentially of’ ester,                    
              ether, and water.”  While that may be appellants’ intention, we must take the claims as                   
              they appear before us on appeal.   Accordingly, we affirm the rejection under 35 U.S.C.                   
               112, fourth paragraph.                                                                                  
                     The decision of the examiner is affirmed.                                                          
                     No time period for taking any subsequent action in connection with this appeal                     
              may be extended under 37 CFR  1.136(a).
