                                                        Appeal No. 1999-1814                                                          
                                                     Application No. 08/688,108

                                                              ON BRIEF1

               Before ABRAMS, MCQUADE, and BAHR, Administrative Patent Judges.                                                        
               BAHR, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                                                     


                                                       DECISION ON APPEAL                                                             

                       This is a decision on appeal from the examiner's final rejection of claims 13-19, which are all of             

               the claims pending in this application.  Claim 13 has been amended subsequent to the final rejection                   

               (see Paper Nos. 9 and 10).2                                                                                            

                       1An oral hearing was set for May 17, 2000.  However, pursuant to 37 CFR  1.194(c), appellant's counsel        
               was notified on May 15, 2000 that an oral hearing was not necessary.  This appeal has been decided on brief.           
                       2We note that the copy of the application filed on July 29, 1996 under 37 CFR  1.60 contains markings         
               which presumably reflect amendments made during the prosecution of parent Application No. 08/420,812, filed April      
                                                                                                         (continued...)
