Follow up: Safari's text-shadow anti-aliasing CSS hack
At the beginning of December I wrote an article about Safari’s text-shadow anti-aliasing CSS hack in-which I explained how you could use the
text-shadow property to create a faux anti-aliasing effect just in Safari. It was later noted in the comments that this would no longer work in the latest versions of Firefox and Safari and indeed it didn’t, at least not very well anyway.
Rogie King has found a new method to alleviate this problem in the latest versions of Firefox and more specifically the Safari 4 beta. Instead of using a solid background colour Rogie explains that using a 99% transparent text-shadow colour creates the same result. E.g.:
text-shadow: rgba(0,0,0,.01) 0 0 1px;
Definitely check out Rogie’s article on this where he provides some visual examples and describes it in more depth; Safariâ€™s text-shadow anti-aliasing CSS hack Revision.
