           Summary: [SECTStudio-Symbolizer]Reverse the Style Preview order
           Product: MapLab
           Version: 3.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: SECT (Studio)

I know you guys will not fix this interface issue, right now. But I at least
want to have this bug open. 

Ok, the preview of the Layered style in the Symbolizer are backwards. Meaning
the top style is the first layer of the super-style to render making it the
style on the bottom. Where the bottom style on the preview list is the last to
be render (or overlayed on top of the first style). For example, when styling a
double line road. The thick line would hide the thinner style that is suppose to
be on top and visible. This how sld loads the style, but visually this is not
how people interpret the interface.

You could also argue that for the classes it works from top to bottom in
rendering each class, where each style in a class loads bottom to top. Going
between these interfaces is confusing. 

In any case something should be done about this.
