The use of different terms by Appellants suggests different meanings for decorator and decorator icon. See, e.g., CAE Screenplates Inc. v. Heinrich Fiedler GmbH & Co. KG, 224 F.3d 1308, 1317 (Fed. Cir. 2000) (presumption that use of different terms in claims connotes different meanings).

The ordering of references in the rejection is insignificant in the Examiner's obviousness determination. See In re Bush, 296 F.2d 491, 496 (CCPA 1961) (“[W]e deem it to be of no significance, but merely a matter of exposition, that the rejection is stated to be on A in view of B instead of B in view of A, or to term one reference primary and the other secondary.”).

“Where a claim lists elements separately, ‘the clear implication of the claim language’ is that those elements are ‘distinct component[s]’ of the patented invention”. Becton, Dickinson and Co. v. Tyco Healthcare Group, LP, 616 F.3d 1249, 1254 (Fed. Cir. 2010).
...
While we appreciate the Examiner’s point, it is disfavored to interpret a single element as satisfying two different limitations in a claim. See CAE Screenplates, Inc. v. Heinrich Fiedler GmbH & Co., 224 F.3d 1308, 1317 (Fed.Cir.2000) (“In the absence of any evidence to the contrary, we must presume that the use of... different terms in the claims connotes different meanings.”).
