RE: attribute order
I am using Xalan/Xerces. I have tested this with saxon as well and it works fine. So the order of the attributes can be controlled, if desired, with the attribute-sets. Funny, I am using all the time attribute-sets but I have not noticed that the order could be changed. We are following our standards to have consistant output everywhere, if it was not the meta tag issue we would not have noticed this perhaps at all. cheers all meltem -----Original Message----- From: Andy Joslin [mailto:andy.joslin@xxxxxxxx] Sent: Friday, February 22, 2002 10:04 AM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: attribute order Hi Peter I've just tried rearranging the attributes and the processor (in my case, Xalan/Xerces) does seem to respect the order.. e.g. <xsl:attribute name="width">580</xsl:attribute> <xsl:attribute name="cellpadding">0</xsl:attribute> <xsl:attribute name="cellspacing">0</xsl:attribute> <xsl:attribute name="border">0</xsl:attribute> becomes... <table width="580" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0"> I can't speak for other processors, but this works for me. I don't know what setup Meltem is using, but it would be interesting to see if this behaviour is consistent across implementations. cheers Andy -----Original Message----- From: Peter Davis [mailto:pdavis152@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: 21 February 2002 19:34 To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: attribute order It was my experience that processors that change the order tend to alphabetize the attributes, or, if the processor happens to store the attributes in a hash-map of some kind, seemingly random order. Have you tried if rearranging the attribute-set has the same effect in the output?
