Re: [xml-dev] Keep sequencing order of XML list of elements?

What kind of memory?  XML DOM?  SAX calls?  Java or C# object?

Your specs should at least say that elements must be processed in document 
order.  That way when someone misbehaves, you can point out where they are 
in violation.  If you add a seqno attribute, there's less chance of that 
happening. Depending on the application and target audience, that may or 
may not be necessary.
