In its generation of Html files displaying data from a large number of search results, XSLT_PEDS 1.0 provides clear utility in overcoming the 20-result viewing limit for data on the USPTO’s PEDS site. Files containing many results can, however, be problematic when attempting to browse for particular results of interest. A new feature added in version 1.1 aims to mitigate this problem.
In files generated by XSLT_PEDS 1.1, you can now click on any application title to hide all of the data sections in the file except the Application Data sections. This allows for rapid browsing through the application data of all of the search results to locate those of interest. Clicking on any title again will show the hidden data sections. Importantly, the browser view of the file remains on the result of which the title was clicked to show the hidden sections, allowing easy review of that result’s sections when a search result of interest is located. The page with sections hidden may also be printed if desired to provide a hard copy containing only the Application Data for each result.
Update (September 21, 2020) : Control of the feature discussed above was changed in XSLT_PEDS 1.2, as discussed in a later post.
The latest version of XSLT_PEDS is available for download here.
