Abstract : The classical definition of the highest terms is given using the so-called Lexicographic Principle which is one way of establishing an ordering in the set of products of powers of independent variables. The author discusses all possible orderings of products of powers satisfying a simple set of postulates. In this connection the classical Lexicographic Principle is recognized as a special case of a very general principle of ordering.
