          2, 4 through 9, all of the claims remaining in the                          
          application.  In an entered amendment after final (Paper No.                
          21), claim 8 was amended.                                                   

               Appellant’s invention pertains to a dust bag and to a                  
          method for producing a dust bag.  A basic understanding of the              
          invention can be derived from a reading of exemplary claims 1,
