About Display of Priority Number

Post by jhchoi » Tue Apr 14, 2015 9:16 am

Dear OPS Team:

The method of displaying priority number was changed from the last week.

This is the search result of publication number [WO2014083145].

Code: Select all

       <priority-claims>
          <priority-claim sequence="1" kind="national">
            <document-id document-id-type="epodoc">
              <doc-number>[color=#FF0000]US201261731971P[/color]</doc-number>
              <date>20121130</date>
            </document-id>
          </priority-claim>
          <priority-claim sequence="2" kind="national">
            <document-id document-id-type="epodoc">
              <doc-number>[color=#0000FF]WO2012EP76504[/color]</doc-number>
              <date>20121220</date>
            </document-id>
          </priority-claim>
          <priority-claim sequence="3" kind="national">
            <document-id document-id-type="original">
              <doc-number>[color=#FF0000]61/731971[/color]</doc-number>
            </document-id>
          </priority-claim>
          <priority-claim sequence="4" kind="national">
            <document-id document-id-type="original">
              <doc-number>[color=#0000FF]PCT/EP2012/076504[/color]</doc-number>
            </document-id>
          </priority-claim>
        </priority-claims>
Although sequence 1 and 3 are same priority number, they displayed to like separate number.
And sequence 2 and 4 are also.

Originally, the priority numbers have been displayed like as follows.
This is the search result of publication number [WO2012123523].

Code: Select all

        <priority-claims>
          <priority-claim sequence="1" kind="regional">
            <document-id document-id-type="epodoc">
              <doc-number>[color=#FF0000]EP20110305300[/color]</doc-number>
              <date>20110317</date>
            </document-id>
            <document-id document-id-type="original">
              <doc-number>[color=#FF0000]11305300.3[/color]</doc-number>
            </document-id>
          </priority-claim>
          <priority-claim sequence="2" kind="national">
            <document-id document-id-type="epodoc">
              <doc-number>[color=#0000FF]US201113065619[/color]</doc-number>
              <date>20110324</date>
            </document-id>
            <document-id document-id-type="original">
              <doc-number>[color=#0000FF]13/065,619[/color]</doc-number>
            </document-id>
          </priority-claim>
        </priority-claims>
Would you mind the priority numbers to display like the last one?

Thank you.
