Case Sensitive - Font Family

The instructor typed Helvetica and Arial with their first letters capitalized. Is this necessary?

declarations are case insensitive when setting font family

font-family: "Bebas neue";

Will achieve the same results as

font-family: "BeBas nEue";

This is consistent for all CSS declarations as well!

Even when setting properties that are not case-sensitive, it is still a 'best practice" to use the same capitalization as is used for the in the name elsewhere.
