The box-shadow spec (part of CSS3 backgrounds and borders) was worked on much more in the recent past than was text-shadow, and that is where 'inset' first appeared. It is not yet part of text-shadow, but hopefully will be eventually (if it is not first superseded by Filters or some other general drop shadow property).
