Between Seaside2.8a1-lr.220 (and previous) and the latest Seaside (317)
there is a big change in the order in the head attributes writing. As a
webmaster I think it's a bad order. The 2 last lines:

#writeHeadOn: aDocument
	aDocument nextPutAll: docType.
	aDocument openTag: 'html' attributes: htmlAttrs.
	aDocument openTag: 'head' attributes: headAttrs.
	self writeElementsOn: aDocument.
	self writeScriptsOn: aDocument.
	self writeStylesOn: aDocument. (...)

should become:
	self writeStylesOn: aDocument.
	self writeScriptsOn: aDocument.

because you can load CSS files through javascripts. For example, as
XHTML1.1 deprecated <noscript>, it's becoming a common way to load first
a global CSS (for non-javascript browsers or for those who disable it
(for more security in an intranet framework)) and then, to load a
special CSS with javascript:

var style=document.createElement("link");
style.setAttribute("rel", "stylesheet");
style.setAttribute("type", "text/css");
style.setAttribute("href", "/seaside/wafiles/special.css");
style.setAttribute("media", "screen");

to be sure that this special CSS might be loaded only if javascript is

So this must be a good idea to restore this original order (it was done
like that in the previous version of Seaside).
