considering the different look/behaviour of windows and mac browser, i can’t get a textbox with shadow which adapts to his content.
see the white letter http://www.im-fokus-news.de
because of the vertical shadow, the white box is to big (mac) or to small (win), because the textflow is different.
any ideas, how i can get a box which expands the shadow (as gif/png/jpg) in it?
i`ve tried tables with no succes, the image in he cell doesn’t stretch like the cell.
Hmm - I have a solid solution with some flaws in it. Furthermore I am not sure how to describe (even in my best german :-)).
What we need first:
A shadow that is much longer than you need. It could looks like: https://skitch.com/thomaskimmich/8idcd/artwork The two slices need to be taken as shown in the example. The top shadow need to be a jpg including the background-color (flaw 1). The long shadow can be a .png without bg-color (or a jpeg as well including bg).
The idea behind now is to make a simple inline construction using those two slices. The final result will look like this:
I thought it is probably a good idea to share the artwork so you can look what I did:
