RE: Inner shadow and glow effects

There are a number of different preset SVG filter effects included with the
latest preview release, version 0.30, of Jasc Trajectory Pro that you might
take a look at. You can get more information and download a copy of the

Subject: Inner shadow and glow effects

I have a quick question regarding filters. I am using the Adobe SVG Plug-in.
I have successfully been working with filters to accomplish drop shadows
the following:
<filter id="DropShadow" filterUnits="objectBoundingBox" x="-50%" y="-50%"
width="200%" height="200%">
<feGaussianBlur in="SourceAlpha" stdDeviation="2" result="BlurAlpha"/>
<feOffset in="BlurAlpha" dx="4" dy="4" result="OffsetBlurAlpha"/>
<feMerge><feMergeNode in="OffsetBlurAlpha"/> <feMergeNode
Now I am trying to accomplish a few typical filter effects like inner
shadow, outer glow and inner glow (like layer effects in Adobe Photoshop for
instance) on an svg feature. I have been through Adobe's tutorial and all
filter effects on their site and others and could not find a sample that
does this. I have tryed quickly using the
<feSpecularLighting> and others  without success. Does anyone have samples
(or maybe an approach) that
would accomplish these standard effects ?

Thanks in advance !
