    This article looks in detail at radial gradients. If you’ve got a good sense of how linear gradients work, radial gradients should present no great difficulty. And, I’ll again introduce an updated tool for creating radial gradients, which supports the current syntax, and works across all modern browsers which support radial gradients (more on which they are shortly).

    When IE9 was released, I was really happy to see all the great CSS3 features it supported. 2D Transforms, advanced selectors, border-radius, rgba/hsla colors, WOFF fonts … the list goes on. And no polyfills required! I was, however, disappointed that IE9 doesn’t support two of my favorite CSS3 effects: border-image and text-shadow. I’m sure that I will notice other CSS3 effects missing over time, but these are two features that I currently find incredibly useful. This article will deal with text-shadow: how it works in browsers that support it, and strategies we can use today to emulate some of its functionality in IE. Although the solutions I present here are based on IE’s Visual Filters, and that some articles like this one by Neil Crosby have looked into it as a solution, I present here some new information – how to make them work correctly with Windows Standard and ClearType font-smoothing and how to write the final CSS that won’t break any browser.
