Re: Restricting Element Order with Attribute Values
> Is it possible to restrict elements based upon the order of element > attributes? A parser may report attributes in any order, so an XML application such as XSLT has no information about the order that they actually appear in the file. However I think you don't mean attribute order on a single element but rather element order, depending on attributes. You can specify that in Relax NG but not in XSD or DTD. > I'm thinking if I can restrict the order of these elements in my xsd > files I can use > less <xsl:if> in my xsl files when sorting the different types > of web statistics available for each web site inside each server. usually you can just write the necessary XPath's to not depend on the order so you don't need any specifc tests for this. Can you give a small example where you think that constraining the source order would save you a test?
