Correct.  It's just based on their relative position on the page.

Actually, element #1285 is from Yahoo.

However, earnings.com will tell you upcoming earnings/splits/dividends information, as long as they've been declared.  Just look at the top element(s) of each.

For an example of an upcoming split, look at CCFH:

Element #1401 (Splits -- Ratio -- 1) = 3-2
Element #1402 (Splits -- Ex-Date -- 1) = 21-Sep-06
Element #1403 (Splits -- Payable -- 1) = 20-Sep-06
Element #1404 (Splits -- Record -- 1) = 6-Sep-06

Or, for an example of an upcoming dividend, look at AEOS:

Element #1421 (Dividends -- Amount -- 1) = 0.113
Element #1422 (Dividends -- Ex-Date -- 1) = 20-Sep-06
Element #1423 (Dividends -- Payable -- 1) = 6-Oct-06
Element #1424 (Dividends -- Record -- 1) = 22-Sep-06

For an example of upcoming earnings announcements, look at BBBY (which has their next three quarters worth of announcement scheduled):

Element #1286 (Quarterly Earnings -- Fiscal Quarter -- 1) = Q4 2006
Element #1287 (Quarterly Earnings -- EPS Estimate -- 1) = 0.79
Element #1288 (Quarterly Earnings -- EPS Actual -- 1) = n/a
Element #1289 (Quarterly Earnings -- Prev Year Actual -- 1) = 0.67
Element #1290 (Quarterly Earnings -- Calendar Date -- 1) = 11-Apr-07
Element #1291 (Quarterly Earnings -- Fiscal Quarter -- 2) = Q3 2006
Element #1292 (Quarterly Earnings -- EPS Estimate -- 2) = 0.52
Element #1293 (Quarterly Earnings -- EPS Actual -- 2) = n/a
Element #1294 (Quarterly Earnings -- Prev Year Actual -- 2) = 0.45
Element #1295 (Quarterly Earnings -- Calendar Date -- 2) = 20-Dec-06
Element #1296 (Quarterly Earnings -- Fiscal Quarter -- 3) = Q2 2006
Element #1297 (Quarterly Earnings -- EPS Estimate -- 3) = 0.51
Element #1298 (Quarterly Earnings -- EPS Actual -- 3) = n/a
Element #1299 (Quarterly Earnings -- Prev Year Actual -- 3) = 0.47
Element #1300 (Quarterly Earnings -- Calendar Date -- 3) = 20-Sep-06

Another example is IBM, which uses a date range for when the next earnings will be released:

Element #1286 (Quarterly Earnings -- Fiscal Quarter -- 1) = Q3 2006
Element #1287 (Quarterly Earnings -- EPS Estimate -- 1) = 1.35
Element #1288 (Quarterly Earnings -- EPS Actual -- 1) = n/a
Element #1289 (Quarterly Earnings -- Prev Year Actual -- 1) = 1.26
Element #1290 (Quarterly Earnings -- Calendar Date -- 1) = 16-Oct-06 - 26-Oct-06

And, by the way, there is a template for the earnings.com elements:
