    3131 A list of the faces which bound a cell in a pre-formatted order

    33 The last two really need help!
     33''Node_Neighbors''
     34 A list of the indices of the nodes which are connected to the central node.  This array of indices would seem to be a "ragged" array, as a central node may be connected to two to many (but probably less than 10 in 2D) nodes.

     36These definations do not stand by themselves.  The dimensions of these data objects go a long way to describ them.  This is in some sense the meaning of "coordinate" variables.  The coordinate dimensions make a real connection between the different data objects.  All objects with a dimension of "nodes" are understood to be values which are valid at the nodal points.  Which nodal points make up a cell is a different matter.  But knowing that the cell is using the nodes coordinate for its corners tells you what variables are defined on the corners of the cells.
