                                            Appeal 2007-0649                                               
                                         Application 10/480,791

                  This application was electronically received at the Board of Patent Appeals              
            and Interferences on December 14, 2006.  Upon review of the application, it has                
            been determined that a remand to the Examiner, via the Office of the Director of               
            the Technology Center, is necessary to consider the following issue and to take                
            necessary corrective action.                                                                   
                  The Examiner has failed to list all prior art relied upon in the rejections              
            currently on appeal under the heading “(8) Evidence Relied Upon” in the                        
            Examiner’s Answer mailed July 21, 2006.  The reference to Morgner et al. (DE
