Veering slightly off at a tangent, but just wondering:
is that a new feature of JAWS? I have 4.02 (admittedly quite old),
and it sticks religiously to code order (and also, surprisingly,
reads out elements that have been marked as display:none in the
CSS - albeit my stylesheets are @imported, so that may explain why)
