0 and γ 1 be Legendrian knots which are isotopic as usual knots, and which have the same obvious invariants rot and link. It seems to be an open question whether γ 0 and γ 1 are isotopic as Legendrian knots. In the paper we give a positive answer to this question for the (rather restricted) class of Legendrian knots with nonintersecting fronts. Key words Legendrian knot isotopy front References
