Indeed, as the Examiner points out, the term “substantially” coupled with the term “encloses” plainly “means: ‘not completely enclosed.”’ Ans. 11. See, e.g., York Prods., Inc. v. Central Tractor Farm & Family Ctr., 99 F.3d 1568, 1572-73 (Fed. Cir. 1996) (“In this case, the patent discloses no novel use of claim words. Ordinarily, therefore, ‘substantially’ means ‘considerable in . . . extent,’ American Heritage Dictionary Second College Edition 1213 (2d ed. 1982), or ‘largely but not wholly that which is specified,’ Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary 1176 (9th ed. 1983).”).
