The pretty printer does not preserve improper spelling of e.g. system
color names, yes. That's not a bug, CSS 2.1 is very clear that
"Although these are case-insensitive, it is recommended that the mixed
capitalization shown below be used, to make the names more legible."
where 'The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL
NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in
this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 (see
[RFC2119]).'
