Ah, I was assuming that those lines were due to the span height being less than the line height, as with this variant:

<span style="border-radius:.5em; line-height:150%; background:white; box-shadow:0 0  0 1px black">This is<br>some text that is longer on the second line<br>and has a third line</span>

But I could be wrong. I also included some code specifically for the case where the spans overlapped (to view in webkit):

Actually, I kind of like end corners being round too, but I would hope to control that with 'box-decoration-break'. Since its initial value is "slice", then the square corners at the breaks do seem appropriate here.


P.S. BTW, when I say "view in webkit", that does not include iOS, where Safari is apparently still stuck with a pre-CR version of box-shadow that does not include spread.
