Chapter 26. Special Effects > Creating a Simple Drop Shadow

Creating a Simple Drop Shadow

Another popular special effect on the Web is the drop shadow. Drop shadows make text (especially large headlines and titles) stand out from the rest of the page, adding emphasis and impact. Before CSS, however, the only way to create drop shadows for the Web was to create a graphic of the text and its shadow. Now, a little CSS trickery lets you do the same thing without resorting to graphics (Figure 26.2).
