Patent and Trademark Office puts a streamlined home page online

The Patent and Trademark Office has streamlined its Web site to emphasize user transactions.

'We just had hundreds of buttons and links before, and it was a very organization-centric site,' webmaster Pam Rinehart said. 'You don't have to learn our way of thinking to get information' about online patent filing at www.uspto.gov, the simplified site that went live April 25.

For most links, Rinehart used mouse-over images instead of drop-down menus, which some browsers can't handle. To comply with Section 508, a text-only version is available through a link on the home page.
