Greetings amakaski!

Take a look at this (I gave it some color to make it easier to see):

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<title>table drop shadow</title>
<style type="text/css">
body{background-color:#ffffff;font-family:Times New Roman, Verdana, Arial;}
.box { float: left; width:100px; height:100px;}
#boxContent { border: none; background: #fcf;  position: relative; left: -3px; top: -3px;}
#boxContainer { position: relative; background: #ff0000; margin: 4px;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div class="box" id="boxContainer">
<div class="box" id="boxContent">
<table><tr><td>this is a table</td></tr><tr><td>with a drop shadow.</td></tr></table>
</div>
</BODY>
</HTML>

amakalski, just so you know, you don't have to use a table. You can, for example, change:

<table><tr><td>this is a table</td></tr><tr><td>with a drop shadow.</td></tr></table>

To:

<p>This has a dropshadow</p>

You can also change the color of:

#boxContainer { position: relative; background: #ff0000; margin: 4px;}

..to any background-color you like.

Greetings Daydreams,
1.I noticed there is one </div> tag missing, should I put it before </body> tag ??
2. Do you know what browsers are going to support this code ?

amakalski,
1. You are very observant! Yes, you should add the closing </div> tag before the </body> tag.
2. This is fine in IE and Mozilla. Should be fine in modern browsers with CSS support.
