                                 Appeal No. 1999-2624                                 
                              Application No. 08/561,658                              
                                       ON BRIEF

          BAHR, Administrative Patent Judge.                                          

                                  DECISION ON APPEAL                                  
               This is a decision on appeal from the examiner's final                 
          rejection of claims 1-10 and 13-18.  Claims 11 and 12, which                
          were objected to by the examiner as being dependent upon a                  
          rejected base claim in the final rejection (Paper No. 7), were              
          canceled and re-written as new independent claim 19 and                     
          dependent claim 20
