Should it really matter what comes first in the source?  Wouldn't it be better if there could be a way to tell text browsers and screen readers what to display first? If the standards could exhort these devices to read stylesheets that had the power to say what comes first, we wouldn't have to worry about source ordering anymore, would we?  Or is there a greater goal or purpose in it?
