Onion Skinned Drop Shadows

Onion Skinned Drop Shadows: Drop shadows that look good in any browser and automatically expand and contract to fit objects of any size. Change the size of drop-shadowed boxes and the depth of the shadows with no image manipulation. The technique uses nested div elements to lay background images on top of one another.

    I’m still a novice at CSS. I need to get a book on it so I can understand most of this stuff. Hell, I just learned HTML last year.

    I’m still learning too. It all gets awfully complex once you get past the basics.
