I need one clarification of Sax parser in order of parsing the xml documnet

say for example

<Attribute Name="Name" Desc ="name" />
<Attribute Name="Amount" Desc="amount" />

whenever i parse the xml i need the first element as "Name" and the second one as "Amount"

SAX will read the xml document forward only ..?
