The CSS code for text-shadow works in everything but Internet Explorer. Any ideas on what I can do about this? Thanks.

Text shadow can be added in IE using the IE shadow filter:

filter: Shadow(Color=#666666, Direction=135, Strength=5);

If you're using Cufon you can also set text-shadow with that in IE

Thanks.... but exactly where would this code go? filter: Shadow(Color=#666666, Direction=135, Strength=5);

It goes into your style sheet, along with a normal selector, e.g.

#shadowElement { filter: Shadow(Color=#666666, Direction=135, Strength=5); }

Update: It works in I.E. 8 but not 6 or 7........ I'll take what I can get, but anyone know if there's a filter for 6 or 7? I know I.E. is out of the loop on this stuff and I'm not going to spend much more time on it, but apparently there are still a lot of I.E. 6-7 users out there and I would like my shadow to be on the rest of the browsers. Thanks again.
