[WSG] link rel=stylesheet question

2010-07-17 Thread Jody Tate
Hello all,

In a stylesheet link, does the order of rel, href and type affect how a browser 
understands, loads, etc. a stylesheet?

I usually see the rel attribute first, as in the example below, but does the 
order of attributes matter or is the order convention, convention meaning, 
that's what most people do?

link rel=stylesheet href=screen.css type=text/css /

Thanks in advance,
jody

It doesn't.

HTML attributes may appear in any order.

Convention. I guess it puts the /purpose/ of the linked resource (namely, being 
a stylesheet) first.

No, the order of HTML attributes is not important; Unless you are
doing something invalid like repeating them within an element.
