In this case no, because they are separate properties.  If it was something 
like .text { left: 20px; left: 30px; }, the meaning would change if they were 

Watch out for shorthand properties though, such as border.  For instance, the 
colour of the border should change if these two border properties were 

	color: black;
	border: thick solid red;
	border: thin;
