Appellants assert the number of references (i.e., five) cited by the Examiner is indicative of nonobviousness. Appeal Br. 15. However, the obviousness “criterion ... is not the number of references, but what they would have meant to a person of ordinary skill in the field of the invention.” In re Gorman, 933 F.2d 982, 986 (Fed. Cir. 1991).
