CSS Letter Press Text On Gradient Background


Recommended Posts

I was curious about how to make text look like its pressed into a header(using text-shadow) on  a gradient background.

I tried a letter press tutorial with no luck.

My test site is here http://shockwave-technology.webs.com/template.html

On the left side of the example ad I am hoping to use css to make a title text look like it is pressed into the header.


Any help is appreciated.

Find the first table on your page,just inside the div with a class of 'header_inner' and apply the text-shadow property.


Considering your code, you could do this:


.header_inner table
     text-shadow:1px 1px #ff02ff;


Kind regards,
