I'm getting conflicting instruction on whether it's necessary or helpful to correct the order within the Order panel, or if I only need to be concerned with the order within Tags. I realize that Order and Tags are used for different things and everything I've read says that I should make sure the order is correct in both of those areas. However a very well known company who does remediation told me not to be concerned with the Order pane. Thoughts? I'm trying to create a guide for our designers and could use some clarity on this. Thank you!

And you've opened a Pandora's box of conflicting information, standards, and opinions!
My firm's recommendations to our clients and students is to be sane and provide the best possible, most usable file to all people using all technologies because that's the intention of the law. And it's in the best interests of society.
Hope this helps. This is a relatively young industry and it will take a few more years to get things set.

Thank you for making this clearer, although I still need the head exploding emoji here. At this point it's clear that whatever process we come up with now will likely have to change as technology and software changes come along. This is a very confusing undertaking, and sources contradict each other, so I appreciate the guidance of the smart folks here.
Technology will always change.
Standards will change with the technologies.
And laws will be updated to meet the new standards and technologies.
But they won't be major "changes," more like "adjustments."
As with every part of our lives, we always have to adjust as we go along.
Take a good class now and the foundation will stay with you throughout your career. There are many options out there, but of course I recommend my own <grin>.
