          Appeal No. 96-0550                                                          
          Application 07/960,148                                                      

          projection display system as disclosed in Ott because Lasher is             
          concerned with problems associated with bilevel sampling not the            
          problems associated with projection display systems.  There is              
          simply nothing in either Ott or Lasher to motivate a person of              
          ordinary skill in the art to combine the disparate teachings of             
          Ott and Lasher.  In our view the only suggestion for such a                 
          combination would have been hindsight knowledge impermissibly               
          derived from appellant's disclosure.  See In re Fritch, 972 F.2d            
          1260, 1266, 23 USPQ2d 1780, 1784 (Fed. Cir. 1992).  We have                 
          reviewed the Iino reference but find nothing there to cure the              
          deficiencies in the rejection.                                              

                    The decision of the examiner is reversed.
