Yes, I think the convention of row-first is well established. Of course the underlying mathematics doesn't care where you spray them round the page.
I remember ordering as being the natural counting sequence
11 12 13 ...
21 22 23 ...
...
and it accords with the "across the row, down the column" summation in matrix multiplication. The mental image of two forefingers scanning like that is burned into my brain.
Frown | :( If only mathematicians could become zero-based. So often in matrix maths there are subscript expressions like p+q-1

Cheers,
Peter
