          Appeal No. 1998-2556                                                        
          Application 08/571,044                                                      


          In summary, we have sustained the rejection of claims                       
          10 and 11 under 35 U.S.C.  112 because appellants have                     
          offered no response to the rejection.  We have not sustained                
          any of the prior art rejections of claims 1-8 and 10-22.                    
          Accordingly, the decision of the examiner rejecting claims 1-8              
          and 10-22 is affirmed-in-part.                                              
          No time period for taking any subsequent action in                          
          connection with this appeal may be extended under 37 CFR                    
           1.136(a).
