Microsoft patent on styles, it's pretty simple to do.

Those people having knowledge of prior art (as was mentioned in earlier
posts) can amend the patent with this information. This can be done
without the patent holder's knowledge or consent, but I don't know if it's
without cost to amend a patent (I think it is without cost).

In the short term, this has no effect, but in the longer term when someone
does get around to challenging the patent, all the amendments would have
the effect of putting the Patent holder in the position of having to prove
the validity of the patent.

I may be able to get additional information on how to do this if anyone is
