Box Shadow CSS

CSS box shadows meant to cast shadows from block level elements. The following code will be supported in all latest browsers (including IE9)

.shadowDiv {
  -moz-box-shadow: 8px 8px 8px #666;
  -webkit-box-shadow: 8px 8px 8px #666;
  box-shadow: 8px 8px 8px #666;
  1. Horizontal X-offset. Negative will move shadow to the left of the box.
  2. Vertical Y-offset. Negative will show above the box.
  3. Blur amount, with 0 it will be sharp.
  4. Shadow color.

The shadow will be inside the box, if we add parameter inset to the code.
