The folks at A List Apart are at it again. Fresh from showing us how to use CSS to make dropshadows, and more recently another means of using CSS to make dropshadows, they have brought us something different: A way to use CSS to make dropshadows that has a catchy name. This leaves us, the web-standards guru-watching public, with a burning question: CSS is great and all, but can I use it to make dropshadows?
In fairness to the find folks at A List Apart, the author is aware to the redundant nature of his article. As with most “how-to” articles available on the web, it is most useful as a demonstration not of how to achieve a particular visual effect, but as a demonstration of how flexible our toolset as web designers really is.
