I have added this info for my (and my colleagues :)) reference to the
bug report but won't reopen it unless I run into a clear statement in a
SAX or XML spec about order preserving of attributes.

I realize I did not get much support for having this fixed, or even have
a patch considered if I'd prepare one, but I can't tell my clients so
easily that their applications have crazy hacks (unless they go against
the Servlet/JSP spec) so please forgive me for trying!

Thanks again,
