Nope. Attribute order is undefined in XML, so parsers are not obliged
to maintain it, and consequently nothing else is either.

You can, however, always sort your attributes: if they're always in
alphabetical order they'll always be in the same order.

Still, the results may be inconsistent across different XSLT processors.
