Good suggestion. In this part of Western Europe most trees grow with their
roots at the bottom, and the branches spread out in all directions.

Hehe. Funny coincidence: all the trees in this part of N. America do that, too!

All I meant was that the definition should point out that document order is independent of the l-to-r/r-to-l/top-to-bottom/bottom-to-top convention for the language in which the document is written... and/or drop the word "normally"... or provide an example in which the doc order is NOT top down, l-to-r.

I don't know; maybe this is a case of over-exactitude at the expense of clarity.
