[fpc-pascal] Endian & Hex numbers

Hi list.

Please forgive me if this is too dumb a question, but:

When using a const written in hex, is the order significant?
Ie. will eg. $1F01 result in the same value (7937) on both big-endian 
and little endian machines?

Likewise, if I use an absolute reference to a variable is the endianness 
also significant?

   A: SmallInt = $1F01;

   B: array[0..1] of byte absolute A;

Will B[0] be the same on both types of endian machines?
