(I'm following up a very old message here, and I've deleted most of
the cc: list.)

We're planning a new XML Base PER and I'm trying to get the patent
statement right.  Here's what you (Ian) said a year ago:

Here's the text I'm planning to use.  Note that the links for
"essential claims" and "disclosure" point into the 2002 document; I
assume that's right.  (Disclosure is section 3 in the 2002 document,
not 6.)
