          Appeal No. 1997-0782                                                        
          Application 08/158,029                                                      


          the brief to the portions of the specification which explain                
          in detail the features.  We read them that way and we believe               
          that the artisan would as well.  Reading certain limitations                
          in light of the specification is not equivalent to reading                  
          into the claim limitations from the specification.  The claims              
          reasonably define the invention disclosed.  Therefore, for all              
          these reasons, the rejection of claims 1 through 15 under the               
          second paragraph of                                                         
          35 U.S.C.  112 is reversed.                                                


               Turning lastly to the rejection of claims 1 through 15                 
          under 35 U.S.C.  102(b) as being anticipated by Cichelli, we               
          also reverse this rejection.  Cichelli's invention is a                     
          sophisticated Teletext system which essentially broadcasts                  
          one-way to the various receivers information from the head end              
          system of Figure 1.  There is a repetitive transmission of                  
          this information from this head end system to each receiver                 
          which enables the user there to select which portions of that               
          continually recurring one-way data message the user desires.                
          Thus, there is no true interactive nature as this term is                   
          conventionally used in the art in the Cichelli system.  In                  
                                          5
