I'm a big fan of the CSS3 text-shadow property, but I can't get this effect for ANY version of IE. I saw my page in IE9, which I thought rendered the effect, but no!
The other thing is I have gradients that really look good in chrome/firefox, which I created with http://www.colorzilla.com/gradient-editor/, which generates code specific to MANY versions of browsers including IE, but still I see no cool gradients or anything in IE.
Darn you, IE. Darn You. I'll put this guy here :x so I won't say naughty words about IE for everyone to see.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge about rendering these effects in IE.
