Hi.

Section 5.6 says: "Comparisons are applied in the order they occur in the
DAV:orderby element, earlier comparisons being more significant.".

However the example 5.6.2 says:

This sort orders first by last name of the author, and then by size, in
descending order, so that the largest works appear first.

<d:orderby>
  <d:order>
    <d:prop><r:lastname/></d:prop>
    <d:ascending/>
  </d:order>
  <d:order>
    <d:prop><d:getcontentlength/></d:prop>
    <d:descending/>
  </d:order>
</d:orderby>


Proposal: say "...so that for each author, the largest works appear first".
Or alternatively, show a sample result set.

Julian
