Re: [OT] Re: Geoworks and their patent
And let us remember the brief flurry of interest last year when it turned out that Microsoft (apparently not the IE guys, who were convincingly baffled) was granted a patent more or less on the notion of stylesheets.

Just recently Yahoo got a patent on the notion of serving web pages by caching data in memory and using it to fill templates at run-time. My brother is an industrial designer, and co-holder of a patent for an ingenious doohickey that mixes gas samples quickly and efficiently in support of gas-chromatograph applications.
