[IDV #OOS-641584]: reading a .nc file that is really HDF-5

Hi Brian,

Can you try opening the test.ncml file attached to this message (in the zip 
along with a test dataset)?

There should not be any encoding issues, although if you are using VIM to write
your ncml files, it may be adding a BOM at the begining of the file that can
sometimes cause things to mess up. However, for now, just try the files that I
attached (they work on my Mac just fine).

Also, you are correct. To open the ncml file, use

Data Choosers -> Files -> select ncml file and click add source. The Data Source
Type can be "I'm Feeling Lucky" or "Grid files (netCDF/GRIB/OPeNDAP/GEMPAK)".
