Not necessarily.  I just wanted to note that you *can* make declarations
using @-rules.  Bert Bos suggested the following for doing shadows:

    @shadow unsharp-gray-shadow {
        x: 0.3em;
        y: 0.3em;
        color: gray;
        transparency: 80%;
        blur-type: gaussian;
        blur-radius: 0.1em

    H1.headline {
        text-decoration: shadow(unsharp-gray-shadow);
