another dimmer / 3 way switch question

Hello,

I am finishing up wiring lights that will be controlled by both a dimmer and 3 way switch.

I am baffled at the 3 way switch though. The instructions are pretty vague.
The ground is obvious, and the common is marked.
However, there are 2 brass screws which are not marked in any way.

I need to connect the two traveler wires to these screws but have no idea which one gets connected to which screw. Does it matter?

If it does matter, does anyone have an idea which should be connected to the red wire coming from the dimmer, and which should be connected to the red/white wire coming from the dimmer?

Thanks for any help!

No, it doesn't matter. They are interchangeable.
