HTML and CSS Reference
The text-shadow property is similar and specifies the horizontal and vertical offset as 2px. The blur
value is also set to 2px. Figure 13-12 shows the resulting box.

Note that text-shadow isn't supported in all browsers (IE9 for example), but box-shadow has good
support in all the leading browsers.
By default, a box shadow is placed outside the box. You can change this behavior using the inset
keyword like this:
box-shadow: 5px 5px 5px #808080 inset;
When you add the inset keyword at the end, the shadow appears inside the box rather than outside
