[THREDDS #EKW-848317]: Multiple viewer links ignored in TDS v4.2.5



Hi Kevin,

To get multiple viewers, the viewer property names have to be unique and start 
with "viewer". If there are multiple property elements with the same "viewer*" 
name, only the first of that name will be used.

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/tech/tds4.2/reference/Viewers.html#Adding_a_viewer_link_with_a_viewer

It should have been the same in 4.2.4.

All property elements are listed in the "Documentation" section. It is on our 
list to remove "viewer" properties from that section so they only show up as 
Viewer links. It just hasn't made it to the top of the list yet.

The viewers from property elements show up in the order they appear in the 
catalog.
