           Summary: text-shadow offset-values wrong since Safari 3.0.x
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 523.x (Safari 3)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: szeky at yahoo.com

This bug can be seen in all versions of safari 3 on Windows an Mac.

We use text-shadow heavily in our web-applications, sometimes as shadow,
sometimes as bevel effect. I don't know exactly when it happened, but the bug
was definately not present in Safari 3.0.0 and 3.0.1. It appeared in one of the
versions afterwards. 

Until that bug you would use a CSS-Declaration like that: "text-shadow: 0 1px 0
#000;"  for getting a 1px black not antialiased "duplicate" text below the
original text.

Now you have to enter: "text-shadow: 0 2px 0 #000;" for getting the same
result! Why? 

If you enter: "text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #000;" you'll see no shadow at all! What
for is an offset of 1px i it doesn't show, but shows in other browsers?

This change breaks all of our page-designs and was not announced anywhere, as
far as i know! Now that Opera 9.5 supports text-shadow as well, the problem
gets even worse! If you build pages for Safari, they now look awfull in Opera
und vice versa! 

Will that change remain? If yes, then we'll have to stop using text-shadow, for
the results of using it will be totally unpredictable! I think an offset of 1px
has to be 1px, not 0px, as it is now! 

Is there any documentation or stuff where you people have talked about the
change? I can find no article about that anywhere onthe web, so i think, noone
has recognised it yet. Although that seems strange to me ...
