I'd allow before because it's conforming in HTML4 and it works and I'd 
allow after because it's quite commonly done that way anyway, and I 
can't think of any good reason to disallow either.

That's what I had first, but then I thought it could be condensed to the
other one.  Since (a & b) is equivalent to (a, b)|(b, a), aren't both of 
those equivalent as well?
