order definitely matters

it depends; if proportionalSansSerif maps to Arial (on some implementation)

if proportionalSansSerif maps to F1 and proportionalSerif maps to F2, and
if the character maps (cmap tables) of both F1 and F2 define mappings for
the same set of characters, then the above would be equivalent to:

tts:fontFamily="proportionalSansSerif" or
tts:fontFamily="F1"
