Quoting Xasima Xirohata <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
> Hi, everybody.
> I wonder why the order of attributes doesn't matter in the XML 1.0. spec.
This characteristic of attributes is inherited by necessity from SGML: XML 1.0
was derived (if that is the right word) from SGML, such that XML 1.0 data could
be correctly processed by SGML processors.
So to find a written reason for this language design choice, you'd need to look
back to the roots of SGML.
