Hello all,

I'm taking my first steps with gmsh and I noticed that there
seems to be an inconsistency between the online documentation and
the real gmsh output.

At http://www.geuz.org/gmsh/doc/texinfo/gmsh.html#Node-ordering
it is graphically illustrated that the node ordering for a
triangle element is counterclockwise.  However, the following
file produced with gmsh 2.4.2 seems to have clockwise ordering
for the nodes of a triangle:


Is this indeed a bug in the documentation or am i misinterpreting

Kind regards,
