To followup, I just tried the first Human milk saccarides example on the 
Sweet webside, 2'-Fucosyllactose, and the PDB file it generates doesn't 
display at all because of the non-standard data in columns 67-72.  We have 
decided that we're being too strict in this case and will change chimera. 
In the iterim, if you're on a UNIX system (Linux, Mac OS X, etc.), you can 
truncate the lines with the following:

awk '{if (/^ATOM/) print substr($0, 1, 67); else print $0}' < original > fixed

with appropriate filename replacements for original and fixed.
