OK. Fine with me. However, I just want to make sure that we have consistant
rules. That is, we say that even if the tag is empty it **must** be present
in all cases. If it's okay to leave it out sometimes and not others, people
will forget and it gets confusing as to when and where it is allowed.

Good question. My feeling is that the Questions should come last. However,
the order of the KU references is unimportant, right? That is, the pages
could come first and then the Topics or the Topics first and then the pages.
However, (again my feeling) the topics are important enough and will "always"
be there, so they should come after the attributes. You then end up with
