SOS Javascript Client

This is not truly a generic parser but is aimed squarely at SWE 1.0 ( as implemented by the OOSTethsy project) and NOAA's IOOS DIF SOS formats which are being used by the NOAA IOOS program and it's regional partners.

The code is also available at the Google Code repository for the OOSTethys project at:
