filter: drop-shadow(); is a good alternative. Thank you for the suggestion!

However, I still cannot get rid of the feeling that the text-shadow property is crippled when it differenciates between text and replaced content. Probably the property name has not been the best choice to take.

Also there are filter: drop-shadow(); which behave in such way.
Is there any reason not to use it?
