Use of 'behind' when referencing URI portions

The media fragment specification has the following text in section 2.1:

"URI fragment = anything behind a "#" in a URI
 URI query = anything behind a "?" and before a "#" in a URI"

I find the use of the word 'behind' to be ambiguous as to whether it
refers to the left hand side or right hand side of the portion of the
URI in question. To me, behind means 'to the left of'. In particular
use of 'behind' and 'before' for the URI query portion seems
confusing. Can we use 'after' or a similar word?
