I know that this may look really bad from my side: but what is the
order of nodes you get from getNodes() call? This is exactly the
vicious circle I was mentioning in the first mail:

The document order is the order in which getNodes() returns the
nodes.... and getNodes() must respect the document order.

If we agree that document order is the order in which the nodes where
added, than this vicious circle vanishes, but otherwise it is still

Sorry for these questions, but with all my efforts I haven't been able
to give a good explanation to this and the answers so far are on the
same initial confusion page I have started with :-(.
