This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Does the specification say anything about the natural order in xml? Means, when an element which has multiple occurence gets parsed is it guaranteed across parsers that we will get the elements in the same order in the parsed tree? Or do we need to define an attribute to indicate order?
I don't know why it would, or how that's related--is there something you've read that makes you think it's relevant?

From reading the article. This is what I got.
Normal xml specification doesn't say anything about order or any other processing instructions.
Processing instructions follow a separate specification which usually refers to XML info set specification.
So might get the order?
Also please help me with why we have XML infoset specification?
