It should. According to the FO and CSS2 specs, font names are just strings
(normalised if not quoted), and should match exactly. In FO, particularly,
this should matter, for XML is case-sensitive and font names are explicitly
not limited to latin characters. Remember conversion between lowercase and
uppercase is language-dependent.
However, the CSS2 spec itself is misleading: it specifies generic names in
lowercase ("SERIF" will not work), but the examples for font-family shows
all-lowercase names. I suspect this has something to do with they beeing
OS-bound in some implementations.
I prefer to consider them case sensitive for safety and consistency. Case
insensitivity is a bad inheritance from HTML.
