Apply a Shadow to font on a website

Hi,

I am using DreamWeaver CS4.  I would like to font to display in BLACK but to have gold shadow.

How would I get Dreamweaver to do this please?

I've been trying for ages, to no avail.

Thank you.

Steve.

here's a tutorial

http://www.hypergurl.com/cssdropshadow.html

you see the problem or in my case using safari 4 on a mac, don't see the problem, most browsers don't support it.

I tried it with webkit installed and it didn't render, then...

Therefore I would suggest creating a graphic in either fireworks or photoshop or the program of your choice.

Here's a way to get a shadow effect. By layering 2 or more text div slightly off center from one another.
Fully supported in most browsers........
A quick way to view/edit it is by going to this page.
Clearing out the code on the left. Pasting your and clicking the button on top.
IT will display your code and you can easily edit it..
