OK let's say I have this

.test {
filter:DropShadow(Color=#000000, OffX=1, OffY=1);
}

Open in new window


Yes, it works fine. The text-shadow appears in Internet Explorer. However... if I add a background for color like so:

    .test {
    filter:DropShadow(Color=#000000, OffX=1, OffY=1);
    background:#ffffff;
}

Open in new window


Can you guess what happens? The filter goes way! However, if I ,once again, remove the background property... the filter (text-shadow) comes back!

Help?

The shadow effect of the "filter" does not work against a background image or color.

What you should be using is GIF images with shadows for this floating effect.

If you want to design universal web pages for all users to see, do NOT use these quirky M$ concepts.
