As far as CSS goes, it doesn't matter. (Just like 'red' and '#F00' are 
identical as far as CSS goes).

If you are attempting to implement serialisation according to my 
canonicalisation proposal [1], then you'd want to serialise to the first 
possible form according to the syntax. So effectively:

   <color>? <length> <length> <length>?

However, this is not an official standard.
