Default Spark Plug Wires Hooked Up Wrong? (Pics inside)

I was looking at my plug wires since I was thinking about taking the valve cover off to do a mod.

Looking in my Haynes Repair Manual, it makes it look like the plugs wires are supposed to connect to the cap in a clock-wise manner, but its kinda vague and I can't see for sure. Are these connected properly? I just bought the car, so I haven't done anything to them yet.

Click the image to open in full size.

I've searched and looked online, and I can't find a definative answer.

Thanks in advance.

Looks to me like they're all set. I believe that if they were wrong, you'd be misfiring. (someone want to back me up or contradict me on this?)

^^^^Yeh, if your engine runs smooth, you're good to go. If they were hooked up wrong, you would have one awful sounding, rough idling engine.

I could smack myself in the face with a hammer too, just so I know what that feels like... but I'll pass on both.
