  • Patent number: 8484552
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for extensible stylesheet design using meta-tag information are disclosed. A designed stylesheet is for transferring content-oriented markup language files into a target file so as to support various presentations and information exchange. According to one aspect, a data processing mechanism starts with inserting meta-tag declarations in a target file wherein the meta-tag information pertains to information between dynamic objects in the target file and a source file. The target file with meta-tag information is then converted into one or more extensible stylesheets.

  • Patent number: 7294056
    Abstract: An enhanced gaming system through which a variety of games of chance and/or games of skill can be made available to players. The gaming system separates game outcomes from game themes and game payout/buy-in information, thereby enhancing game flexibility. The gaming system also allows different games of chance and/or games of skill to be available to different subsets of player units, and gives a gaming hall operator the ability to dynamically control the size and distribution of such subsets. An “apparently random” permutation production technique is disclosed for use in certain games and regulatory environments. A PKI-based architecture is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7146564
    Abstract: Techniques for extensible stylesheet designs using meta-tag and/or associated meta-tag Information are described. To generate a proper stylesheet (e.g., an XSL or XSLT file) from a source file (e.g., an XML file), all meta-tag and/or associated meta-tag Information are differentiated by attaching respectively unique identifiers to those that are otherwise identical. To facilitate user required operations on certain data in the source file, a document source path for the data is identified and inserted with one or more operators thus to form document source path information. The differentiated meta-tag and/or associated meta-tag Information and source path information are relied upon to generate one or more stylesheets.

  • Patent number: 7080083
    Abstract: Techniques for designing stylesheets using meta-tag and/or associated meta-tag information are described. In one embodiment, a graphic user interface environment including at least two displays is provided. One of the displays is from a commonly used browser or an application to display a target file including a plurality of objects and the other display is used to facilitate the editing of a tree structure. Each of the nodes in the tree structure is associated with one of the objects by associated meta-tag information. Based on the tree structure, a source can be generated. Together with the source file, the stylesheet can be designed in accordance with the displayed target file.

  • Patent number: 6249009
    Abstract: A random number generator comprises a laser for generating photons, an assembly of neutral density filters to attenuate the photons to an average of number of photons detected and to detect the average number of photons during each interval in a series of like time intervals, a photomultiplier tube to detect the occurrence of a fraction of the attenuated photons during a set length of time, and a clock and shift register to record a first value for detection of any photons during a selected single time interval in the series of time intervals, and to record a second value for detection of less than the average number of photons during the selected single time interval. The values recorded in the shift register for the series of time intervals are a string of truly random numbers.

  • Patent number: 5620266
    Abstract: A method for optimally controlling the carriage of a serial printer which is capable of printing line by line is disclosed. In controlling the carriage motor, until before the drive of the head, the carriage motor is controlled based on the head drive basic unit, i.e., steps of 1/360 inches, thereby making it possible to recognize the head fire position accurately. After the drive of the head, the carriage motor is controlled based on the carriage drive basic unit, i.e., steps of 1/120 inches, thereby reducing the number of interruptions in the central processing unit, and improving the system efficiency.
