This will blow you away, and visitors too maybe, but it is interesting --

It is much better to do it in photoshop though.  You only want glow on special text, and PS can do anything you want much better than standard text effects, which really don't work in CSS2.

Well i'm not blown away, but it was cool. Of course photoshop is a great solution here, you would end up with way more control over the finished product.

Create a glowing border image in a paint program, then cut it into top right corner, bottom right corner, bottom left + bottom border, and right border.  Use the rest for top left.  Make sure to use transparency so the background bleeds through, or alpha transparency for a better looking glow.  Use CSS to place the pieces and repeat border edges to create the border.  This should give the appearance of an outer glow.
