I believe this should be mentioned somewhere in the spec; but I could not
find it..

I see that in XPath you mention that forward axes return a sequence of
nodes in document order, and reverse axes return a sequence of nodes in
reverse document order.

My question is regarding attribute and namespace axes; they are classified
as forward axes; so what is the result order?

best, murali.
