To whom it may concern,

I tried to validate my own catalog xml file using Catalog Validator 
(http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8080/validation/CatalogValidation.html). 
My xml file: 
http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/cas/catalog/satellite/isccp/netCDF/example.ctx

The resule that I got is as below:

Catalog
http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/cas/catalog/satellite/isccp/netCDF/example.ctx

                                 is Valid 

----Catalog Validation version 0.6.02 

**Dataset (3) (Example CGD/CAS/ISCCP datasets/ISCCP.199502.T42.nc): is not 
selectable and
does not have nested datasets 

**Dataset (3) (Example CGD/CAS/ISCCP datasets/ISCCP.CLM.T42.nc): is not 
selectable and
does not have nested datasets 

**Dataset (3) (Example CGD/CAS/ISCCP datasets/ISCCP.SFCFLUX.nc): is not 
selectable and
does not have nested datasets

My question are what the last several sentences mean, whether I need to and how 
to change my xml file for these error messages. 
   
Below is my xml file:

<?xml version='1.0' ?>
<!DOCTYPE catalog SYSTEM
