Please explain to me why text-shadow effect doesn't work when I apply it to
text through css. I heard that it is not possible in css1. What does that
mean, how do I know if I can render css2 and css3 or not.
Thanks for the answers

it was not part of the CSS1 recommendation

use the below and modern browsers when experimenting such as opera and

master compatibility charts:
old: /
opera support: /

Implement CSS2/3 text-shadow property

Only Safari 1.2+ and WebTV can render decently text-shadow according to
W3C web standards; MSIE 6 can render text-shadow through proprietary
extensions. The interesting part is that the specs indicate that blur
radius and shadow color are optional: so more browsers could probably be
able to support the shadow offset only and still claim to be able to
offer minimal support for text-shadow.

The site said to use Internet Explorer 5 or better... so I switched to
Mozilla 1.7.3 :)
