Cartographic CSS parser

Here is an example Cartographic CSS style definition from the CSS Cookbook:

* {
   mark: symbol(circle);
   mark-size: 6px;
 }

 :mark {
   fill: red;
 }

The following code can be used to parse the above file and generate a GeoTools Style object:

Stylesheet ss = CssParser.parse(css);
CssTranslator translator = new CssTranslator();
Style style = translator.translate(ss);

Here is the SLD represenattion of the generated style:
