Oh dear, this has started a thought I don't need. Is a yellow and black striped jersey the same as a black and yellow striped jersey, to put your two descriptions another way? And if there is a distinction, do you start by looking at the top most stripe, and taking that as the start, or start from the bottom and work from there. This is my day ruined.
