Re: Attribute Order
From: "Simon St.Laurent" <simonstl@s...> > Least disruption seems like a reasonable approach to me. I agree. A further point is that the human use of an XML document as a marked-up text is not always using an "XML processor" in the sense that the spec uses. An XML processor parses the XML and makes available information items (see Appendix B http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-infoset/ ), but an XML editor may not even parse the document, or may parse it in some devious or incremental way: an editor or reader of an XML document may work off the text of the entity not the infoset. Contrast applications which work off text with applications that extend the infoset: such as XML in canonical form where the attributes are given in alphabetical order: in that case, I suppose the basic infoset is notionally augmented with positional indicators.
