               Application 07/865,165                                                                                              

               upon or explained how the prior art would have suggested or led one skilled in the art to thes e                    
               particular binary dye compounds being claimed.                                                                      
                      For the foregoing reasons, we find the examiner has not made out a prima facie case of
