I guess we jut have to agree to disagree then :-) XML that represents
data from a database is ordered and the order does in fact matter as
it is usually the result of a sort of some kind. There are times when
you would like to print things off as they appear in the XML tree.

I'm actually referring to how I would like to see arrays behave in
Revolution. They just aren't the types of arrays you are accustomed
to. Like I said before, I really like how PHP arrays work and I am
advocating something similar in the feature request (which David filed).
We just have different views on how an array should work in Revolution.
