Title: Ordering of child nodes after parsing
If, for example I have the following piece of xml
is it written (in the XML spec) anywhere that the parser must return those child nodes in the order that they have been given. I know it sounds right that it should, but I need to know if this is in the spec (this is for a boolean evaluation system I'm writing in XML / PERL and I need to know if for safety's sake I should put some ordering information in my children (variables), or if this is built into this spec)
Thanks for any info.
