Full Article Attached Microsoft Patents Style Sheets and Butt Hinge

Thursday February 4th, 1999

Microsoft has received patents for "Style sheets for publishing system", and for "Butt hinge with integrally formed butt straps"..

It was mighty kind of Microsoft to get the input of the development community before taking everything for themselves. I guess that everyone should just feel glad that Microsoft let them participate at all.

Thank you, Microsoft!!!

For those of you who think that Microsoft couldn't possibly be referring to CSS, just click Full Article below to see their list of references.

WOW! I really thought this was dumb. Then I checked out some of the other patents on that site. THEY'RE ALL DUMB!!!!

If you work in electronic publishing, go to that MS patent and click on the referenced patents. It is pretty obvious that the patent office doesn't have a clue what is going on.

I'd like to blame MS, but you have to think that this is the way business is done after looking at all the garbage there. What a joke!
