Onderwerp: Elements order:

I was wondering if it was possible to have the elements in a XML document
to be inserted in a various order and which is the relative rule in the DTD.

     <name>       john     </name>
     <surname>  wilson   </surname>
     <surname>  wilson   </surname>
     <name>       john     </name>

the rule <!ELEMENT  data  (name,surname)>

tells the parser that name come first and surname after, so the ex 2 will generate a parsing error.
Is it possible to have rule for a generic order of the elements, so that both the example will work?
