          Appeal No. 1999-0738                                                        
          Application No. 08/474,195                                                  

          cancel one another” (column 7, lines 30-43), this opposition                
          occurs upon adoption of the deployed extensible form rather                 
          than upon adoption of the compressed, wound form.  This                     
          difference is highlighted by Groskopfs’ preference for storing              
          the strips 10, 12 on separate storage spools (see Figure 10,                
          column 5, lines 11-19, and column 6, lines 52-62), which                    
          storage arrangement would obviously preclude one strip from                 
          offering any opposition whatsoever to the other strip in the                
          wound form.                                                                 
               For these reasons, we will not sustain the standing  102              
          rejection of claims 1 and 19 based on Groskopfs, nor the                    
          standing  102 rejection of claims 4 and 15 which depend from               
          claim 1.
