          Appeal No. 1998-2879                                                        
          Application No. 08/474,856                                                  


               The 35 U.S.C.  103 rejection of claims 4 and 11 is                    
          reversed because the teachings of Hoffman do not cure the                   
          noted shortcoming in the teachings of Matsuo.                               
                                      DECISION                                        
               The decision of the examiner rejecting claims 1, 3, 5                  
          through 8, 10, 12 through 14 and 18 through 20 under 35 U.S.C.              
           102/35 U.S.C.  103 is affirmed as to claims 18 and 19, and               
          is reversed as to the remainder of the claims.  The decision                
          of the examiner rejecting claims 2, 4, 9, 11 and 20 under 35                
          U.S.C.                                                                      
           103 is reversed.  Accordingly, the decision of the examiner               
          is affirmed-in-part.                                                        
















                                          7
