Post Feature request: RGBA and Text Shadows
Title is pretty self explanatory. I absolutely love CSS3 PIE but it would be that much more awesome if it could support these two things, RGBA values and Text Shadows that don't look like ass in IE.

Thanks for the fantastic work.

But which method would be used for the text shadows?

The Demo of the Valkhof method shows the shadow out of sync in IE6 after "nunc felis ac":

Here's another, more recent project using .htc, has rgba, too:

I don't see any effects in IE6.. (don't have IE7-8 right now) Please test and comment.

Also see this: http://fetchak.com/ie-css3/

This looks pretty promising. I especially like the ability to round individual corners as well. I haven't extensively tested it, just looked at his demo page, but if it works as advertised it could be a nice alternate to PIE until these features are added. I don't really give a flip about IE6 TBH. As long as the page functions without breaking it doesn't need to look exactly the same. IE7 and 8 on the other hand...

Thanks for the links!

Thanks for that link, I hadn't seen this one before. I've contacted Tom Butler to see if we can collaborate in some way.

Thanks for the updates Tonttu! I need to check back more often.

Jason, any more thoughts on how to possibly implement this in PIE?

I think he's already implemented something:

@Tonttu caught me. ;)

Yeah I've been working on adding text-shadow support for a bit now. It's still in the early stages, but as you can see in those screenshots it's already handling multiple shadows, and the blur matches other browsers very closely now (that's very tricky, it takes a finely tuned combination of different filters to make the blur anywhere close, something I've found lacking in other tools).

But there's still a lot of tough work to be done... it currently only handles simple single text nodes but needs to be enhanced to handle nested markup, it doesn't adjust correctly for border or padding, and hardest of all it doesn't update automatically when the content changes. I'll be continuing to work on this, and will push the existing code up to a GitHub branch soon for others to play around with.
