30th August 2011
For Firefox, Safari and Chrome

Just a simple demo to show how text can be transformed to look 'solid' and have a natural looking shadow effect without using any extra markup.
This makes use of CSS skew, multiple text shadows and the :before pseudo-class to apply the text shadow effect.
The full demo with solid text and shadow can be seen in Firefox, Safari and Chrome. The solid text only is seen in Opera and the skewed text only seen in IE9 and IE10.
