Does it matter what order you list the css properties within the curly brackets?

Maybe my mind is still just stuck on the cascading concept...

Hi Lindsay,

Inside the curly brackets it does not matter the order you list the properties unless you are using vendor specific rules (-webkit, -o, -moz), where you put the prefixed ones first and the unprefixed last.

The prefixed one is the "experimental" property - the implementation may contain deviations from the specification.

It's preferable to have the "W3C implementation" used when it's available, to help ensure consistency between all the browsers that support it.
