I have a beautiful glow that really helps the appearance of a site I'm presently finishing up in Safari.  Obviously this does not translate over in IE nor to FireFox.  I've seen a lot of various methods of making somewhat of a glow, but I'm not really happy with any of the methods so far.  

Could you please advise as to what the best and cleanest method for accomplishing this would be in your experience?

There is no glow effect that works alike in all browsers.  Glow features are specific to each browser, as far as I know.  It might change with CSS3, but I wouldn't hold your breath.  To prove me wrong, research

Sure, that's my dilemma. I want to find something that at least somewhat works reliably.  IE's Glow filter did not really look good at all compared to what Safari offers, but I'd at least like to create some sort of an outline.
