Anyway, the CSS needed for Safari is as follows:
.shadow {
      text-shadow: #666666 5px 5px 5px;

       Although Internet Explorer doesnt use the text-shadow CSS property,       it does provide a nice easy way of creating text shadows: the shadow filter.  This       is well documented on other sites, so Ill just give you an example here.  To create       similar shadows to the example above for Safari, youd use the following CSS:   .shadow {
      height: 1em;
      filter: Shadow(Color=#666666,       

Shadows in Mozilla
Heres where things start getting meaty. Since the Gecko based browsers do not know about the previous two methods of creating shadows, we need to create our shadows in some third way.
There are various ways that we could create the text shadows in the Gecko browsers. You could, for example, make use of your favourite image replacement technique to replace the text to be shadowed with an image of some shadowed text. Thats a fine technique, but not the one that I chose. What I chose to do was create a piece of shadow text using the :before pseudo-element.
.shadow {
  line-height: 2em;
  white-space: nowrap;
.shadow:before {
  display: block;
  margin: 0 0 -2.12em 0.15em;
  padding: 0;
  color: #666666; 
#shadow_header:before { content: 'In shadow'; }
