They changed the rules of the game. The W3C CSS Validator now validates 
by default according to the CSS 2.1 "profile", as opposite to the 
previous CSS 2.0 "profile". CSS 2.1 is a draft but in fact considered as 
the excuse for a de-facto specification for CSS, whereas CSS 2.0 is a 
W3C recommendation but not in practice recommended by the W3C. Confused? 
There's some sense in this nonsense, because CSS 2.1 is considerably 
closer to what browsers actually support.

The text-shadow property has been removed from CSS 2.1, due to the lack 
of support. If you still want to use it and wish to check against the 
CSS 2.0 specification, use the interface for selecting the CSS 2.0 
"profile".
