I do not understand anything myself, I am just taking care or a post office. This one came from deegree developer

"a) WGS84BoundingBox must contain coordinates for lower left and upper
right corner of a box; but for TinyOWS it contains lower right and upper

No references were given. But for me the example looks like most western-most southern and then
most eastern, most northen. In TinyOWS output most eastern comes before most western.

The only example from the spec (WFS 1.1.0) is:
            <ows:LowerCorner>-180 -90</ows:LowerCorner>
            <ows:UpperCorner>180 90</ows:UpperCorner>

So i implement:
          fprintf(o->output, " <ows:LowerCorner>%f %f</ 
ows:LowerCorner>", gb->west, gb->south);
          fprintf(o->output, " <ows:UpperCorner>%f %f</ 
ows:UpperCorner>", gb->east, gb->north);

Did you have any other sources ?
