sure they are, and that's fine because that's how RDF works. but what i am
asking about is *resource order*, not *triple order*. if i get resources
a, b, and c on a page, and based on the server-side ordering, these should
be ordered (a, b, c), so that i can reasonably display them in an ordered
UI (such as rows in a table), is that order of the resources represented,
or not?

of course the triples making up a, b, and c themselves are not ordered,
and that's perfectly fine because that doesn't matter in RDF; but in REST,
link semantics matter, and i would expect clients to be able to
distinguish between the links for the first, second, and third resource.

cheers,

dret.
