Modernization of PAIR

Include Description/Title in Listed References

Right now, all NPL (and foreign) references are tagged only with "foreign reference" or "non-patent reference." This can be a pain when you have 20 NPLs and you need to download the one new one the Examiner is relying on.


Ideally I would love a description (e.g. the author's name for any NPL, and the patent number for any foreign reference.)


But if we can't have that, I'd like the items cited (or even better relied on) by the Examiner to be tagged with a star, just like on the published patent.
