[Laszlo-dev] Parsing order of dataset attributes

There are 2 issues here:
1) Henry is right (again!): XML attributes do not have an order, so
the example is just broken. To make the column order the same across
platforms, you would have to bind the columns to nodes (which are
ordered), not attributes; or, impose some ordering on the columns
(e.g., does grid have an option to specify its columns, rather than
intuiting them from the databinding?). Diddling the runtimes to make
the column orders match is not the correct solution.
[DOC Guy: In fact, his would make a good documentation example,
showing the inherent unorderedness of XML attributes and how to deal
with that, assuming there is a way to specify grid column order.]
2) I do see one more deferred event handling in the DHTML case than
in the SWF case. This may be indicative of another problem.
I don't know about your theory of SWF node instantiation and the
other bugs, but I do not believe it is relevant here.
