torque specs and order for valve cover?

I am just about ready here- but surprisingly, I am finding little info in regards to torque specs, and tightening order. Is there a certain order for tightening the cover down after changing the gaskets? What kind of torque should I be using here? Thanks

The spec for the valve cover fasteners is 10 nm (about 7.2 ft/lbs

One more thing, tightening sequence is diagonally from inside to outside
