Hi,

I would like to suggest adding 'text-shadow' to the supported properties for <text><tspan><tref>. This is already supported in WebKit and can be tested on Safari and Chrome releases: http://jsfiddle.net/ywkzc/


I use text shadow a lot, declaring it with attributes would be very useful.

If we are going to implement drop shadow on text, we should do it in a generic way so that any geometry can benefit from it.

Drop shadow is useful on constructs other than text.

Text-shadow and drop-shadow address different use cases sometimes. They are hard to compare. Drop shadow is possible with feDropShadow, the drop-shadow() filter function or a long version with feGaussianBlur, feOffset, feFlood, feMerge and feComposite.

Greetings,

It works with multiple text shadows as well.

Greetings,
Dirk
