          Application No. 08/059,350                                                  


          35 U.S.C.  103 as obvious over Hasegawa in view of Takahashi.              
          Claims 41-45, 49-53, 57-63, 65-72, 74, 76-79, and 81-85 stand               
          rejected under 35 U.S.C.  103 as obvious over Hasegawa in                  
          view of Takahashi further in view of Yoshizawa or Soohoo.                   
          Rather than repeat the arguments of the appellants or examiner              
          in toto, we refer the reader to the briefs and answer for the               
          respective details thereof.                                                 




                                       OPINION                                        
               In reaching our decision in this appeal, we considered                 
          the  subject matter on appeal and the rejection advanced by                 
          the examiner.  Furthermore, we duly considered the arguments                
          and evidence of the appellants and examiner.  After                         
          considering the totality of the record, we are persuaded that               
          the examiner erred in rejecting claims 40-63 and 65-85.                     
          Accordingly, we reverse.                                                    


               We begin by noting the following principles from In re                 
          Rijckaert, 9 F.3d 1531, 1532, 28 USPQ2d 1955, 1956 (Fed. Cir.               
          1993).
