The CSS3 box-shadow property is a new way of adding drop shadow effects just by editing a style sheet. There’s no need to use Photoshop!
The box-shadow property takes several attributes/values, like any other CSS property, and these are are specified in order as follows: box-shadow: Apx Bpx Cpx #XXX:
* Apx - Horizontal offset of the shadow: use positive value for right, and a negative value for left shadow;
* Bpx - Vertical offset: use a negative value to add top shadow, with positive value the shadow will be below the box;
* Cpx - The blur radius: a value of 0 makes the shadow sharp, the higher the number, the more blurred;
* #XXX - Color.
The following code is generated for the box-shadow in CSS3Menu:
-moz-box-shadow:0.7px 1px 1px #777777;
-webkit-box-shadow:0.7px 1px 1px #777777;
box-shadow:0.7px 1px 1px #777777;
Here's a snapshot from Firefox showing the box-shadow effect:
The box-shadow is supported by the following browsers: Webkit (from Safari 3+, Chrome), Opera 10.5, Firefox 3.5.
The text-shadow property is used as follows:
text-shadow:2px 2px 2px #000;
CSS Shadows take three length values, and a color. The length values are a horizontal offset, a vertical offset and a blur. Offsets may be negative or positive.
