Yes, the *initial* concern was over the relative order of octave
marks and durations.  My *current* concern is that if it's
possible for people to get confused over
then surely they could also get confused over

If so, there's two options:
1) give a general explanation of pitch-dur-other.  In addition to
that order, explain that the order of "other" doesn't matter.
2) give an explanation of pitch-dur, then later on explain
pitch-dur-other (or maybe "note-other", or something like that)

I thought that #1 would be best, but if you'd rather go with #2, I
have no objection.
