Microsoft's CSS gallery examples using negative margins look like crap
on my system. I tried some examples of my own using multiple layers of
text to simulate drop shadow and dimensional text. The result with 15
pixel font is ok for two layers. The result with 40 pixel font is not.
The results for both get very weird when additional layers are
specified. I put the results, including the code and bitmap images from
my browser,  at
