Issue 32 is about box-shadow which it reads.

Resolve: Box-shadows are only drawn outside the element's border-box.

Box-shadow is different from text-shadow since shadows with text-shadow 
are seen through transparent text. Seen in Safari.


You keep on intermingling box-shadow with text-shadow. All I have been 
referring to is about box-shadow since that what the two treads have 
been largely about. Even the subject line in each thread is box-shadow.

When I talk of inner shadow, I only referring it to box-shadow.
