                                  DECISION ON APPEAL                                  
               This is a decision on appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134 from                
          the  rejection of claims 27-36.  We affirm-in-part.                         


                                     BACKGROUND                                       
               The invention at issue in this appeal relates to a sheet-              
          fed, rotary offset printing press.  In such a press, the                    
          presence of a layer of moist air that clings to the surface of              
          a freshly printed sheet reduces the quality of printed images.
