The Simple format is defined as follows: Any line that looks like
ID HH MM SS.SS +/-DD MM SS.SS TYPE # Comment
will be matched. A space is allowed between the sign and the declination. The type is optional (as is the comment) and can be one of J2000, B1950, GALACTIC, AZEL or SUPERGALACTIC or the JCMT abbreviations (RJ, RB, GA or AZ). If TYPE is not present J2000 is assumed.
