HTML to XML conversion method covered by 1999 patent

Non-practicing entity (colloquially known as a "patent troll," or company that derives all or most of its income off of patents it does not actually utilize) EMG has filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Google in the notoriously NPE-friendly District Court for the Eastern District of Texas in the Tyler Division. The lawsuit accuses Google of infringing EMG's 1999-dated patent on a simplified navigation system on smartphones and tablets. The patent seeks unspecified monetary damages, and a preliminary plus permanent injunction to prevent Google from distributing its Chrome Mobile browser in the United States.
