I'm trying to figure out how to put a drop shadow around 3 sides of div (top, left and right side).

I'm currently using the following which works in FF/Safari but not IE.

.shadow {
      -moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 3px #666;
      -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 3px #666;
      box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 3px #666;
      /* For IE 8 */
      -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=4, Direction=-45, Color='#666')";
      /* For IE 5.5 - 7 */
      filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=4, Direction=-45, Color='#666');
}

Well, I tried this and it works in IE 8:
<style type="text/css">
.shadow {
      -moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 3px #666;
      -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 3px #666;
      box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 3px #666;
      /* For IE 8 */
      -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=4, Direction=-45, Color='#666')";
      /* For IE 5.5 - 7 */
      filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=4, Direction=-45, Color='#666');
}
</style>

<div class="shadow" style="border: 1px solid #CCC; width: 300px; height: 200px; background-color: white;">
Some stuff
</div>

Open in new window

Also change you can change Color='#666' to Color='#666666' as there is some kind of a problem with it.
