Re: Attribute Order

If a developer does this, it is at their own peril. Attribute ordering is insignificant in the spec, so there is no hard requirement that a DOM implementation (or some other kind of XML representation) needs to keep them ordered while in memory. If a Hashtable of some kind is used for the storage, it is almost certainly likely that those attributes won't come back in the order they were entered. If ordering is important to the developer, and they want their application to be portable between implementations, then they should use element content instead of attributes. -- Tom Bradford - http://www.tbradford.org Developer - Apache Xindice (formerly dbXML) Maintainer - jEdit-Syntax Java Editing Bean
