Uhm.. so yeah, Livejournal eats anything inside the little brackets....
make a table with the style="FILTER:shadow(color=, strength=)" and define the color of the shadow and strength of the extended tail you want on the text.
Then set the font, font color, and font size of the actual text.
Then input the text
Kill the table, so that everything you type isn't fed through the shadow filter.

Why did you delete the other post? I found it quite amusing.

the font filter treatments are part of microsofts hearts-and-minds play for the "Hello Kitty" blogset. asthetics are out the window and the gloves are off! (and they (microsoft, not the bloggers,) made such a stink about the "blink" tag!) anyhow, as such they only work on IE for the PC, so mac mozilla users (like me) don't get to see the fancy shtuff, just text. just sometin to keep in mind.

(very tasteful use of filter btw, and stay away from the "glow" attribute! boy it looks tacky. t'other day i saw a gurl with her whole journal set up to use pink glow, intensity 4, looking at it made me feel like i'd just drank a forty.)

LOL, thank you for the input.

Quick question, does this mean you cannot see the shadow behind the text? Is there a way to write it so both mac and PC users can see it?

I am not very knowledgable about this, a friend showed me how to do it, and actually it was for someone else. tee hee

Do not worry, I shall not use glow.

Thanks again

Re: amused

yup, at least not at home, i originally viewed the post at school, on a windows based system, so i did see it.

sadly, no. (at least not yet, i imagine that microsoft will work to make sure that the filters are supported in IE for the Mac at some point, but we (mac users) are still waiting earlier "improvements" like page "transitions" ) i guess you can take a screenshot of it on your browser, and post the picture of the text, but where's the fun in that?

by the by, a page that tells you about the other attributes of text filterz, and there are many, (including the dread glow,) is:

Re: amused

Mozilla is very similar and more compatible with Netscape Navigator, and has a religious following in the "Kill-Microsoft" sect of the net. CSS commands such as the shadow filter are written for IE and IE compatible surfers. Microsoft will never code anything to help out the competition(though it isn't really any competition for Willy Gates).

Re: amused

i at least, am not a death to MS type of guy, heck, i worked for them for almost a year. i use IE for livejournal almost exclusively, zilla seems to choke on it, taking a lot longer to load. i like mozilla for it's easy to kill browser history, and (slightly) better security record.

after looking into it a bit, i find that the whole text filter thing seems to be a W3C thing, not a Microsoft thing. Netscape is just slow to support it, perhaps they think that MS rigged the standards? Anyhow, Mea culpa. (that still doesn't tell us why MS won't code it into IE for the mac... they did invest 62 Mil in Apple, shouldn't they protect that, at least on the surface?) In any case, i'm not exactly for it at this point. we need to scale our browsers down, make them faster, Opera and iCab show that some third-party programs can do it faster, and stay more stable in the process, so Microsoft should step up and improve the performance of their product, rather than loading it with bells and whistles. right now they seem to be all about getting the next version out, rather than making sure the product is practical, or even safe. sorry moowazz, that this has turned into techno-greek.
