RE: Principles of XML design
So you have a world of true believers and a world of disbelievers. Sorta looks like the American culture at the moment. It doesn't augur well for predictability at either extreme of behavior. When an application doesn't meet user expectations, it is broken by definition even if it is broken by design. You see, if I lead my users to expect that behavior and I support it and you don't, they will be unhappy with your software, not mine. Welcome to the co-referent relationship, a.k.a, shotgun wedding. len From: Chris Burdess [mailto:dog@b...] Not at all. The spec says the order of attributes is not significant. Whether one processor or another chooses to believe that it is significant is irrelevant. Building an expectation of such behaviour will simply leave your users confused and unhappy when they start using another, conformant XML processor without that behaviour and their application is broken.
