CSS3 text-shadow Effects

September 14, 2011

Hi folks, i created the examples on the CSS3 property text-shadow.

The text-shadow property is supported in all major browsers, except Internet Explorer.

Syntax

The text-shadow property attaches one or more shadows to text. The property is a comma-separated list of shadows, each specified by 2 or 3 length values and an optional color. Omitted lengths are 0.
Horizontal and Vertical shadow: can have + or – values. They also can have the value 0.
Blur radius: Represents the size of the blur effect if the value is zero or it wasn’t represented then the shadow won’t be blurred.
Color: is the shadow color. If it is not represented then the shadow color will use the text color instead.

text-shadow: horizontal-shadow vertical-shadow blur color;

.glow { 
   color:#fff;
   text-shadow:0px 0px 20px #00c6ff; }
