6.6. Text Shadows

CSS2 includes a property for adding drop shadows to text, but this property did not make it into CSS2.1 because no browser had implemented full support for it by the time CSS2.1 was finished. When you consider the effort necessary to make a web browser determine the outlines of text in an element and then compute one or more shadows, all of which would have to blend together without overlapping the text itself, the lack of drop shadows in the specification is perhaps understandable.
