XSugar stylesheet for CF-metadata "standard names"

This page contains the XSugar stylesheet for inter-converting between CF-metadata's plain-text format for standard names and a corresponding XML format.   This stylesheet may be used for parsing standard names (i.e. check that they conform to rules specifying how such names may be constructed), as well as for conversion in either direction.

Note that everything below the horizontal line is that actual XSugar stylesheet - this is the master copy.  So only edit it if you know what you are doing!
