                             Ex parte NICOLAS HAHN DE BYKHOVETZ,                                     
                                         and SAID CARTO                                              
                                      Appeal No. 1998-2057                                           
                                     Application 08/331,541                                          
                                             ON BRIEF                                                
           Before FRANKFORT, McQUADE, and GONZALES, Administrative Patent                            
           GONZALES, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                    

                                       DECISION ON APPEAL                                            
                 This is a decision on an appeal from the examiner's final                           
           rejection of claims 18 through 35, which are all of the claims                            
           pending in this application.1                                                             

                 1As the appellants correctly point out at page 1 of the brief, the only             
           claims in the application are claims 18 through 35.  There is no claim 36 in              
           the application.  Thus, the references to claim 36 in the final rejection and             
           in the notice of appeal are obvious errors.
