Lukewilde, thanks for the now obvious tip (kind of the same situation as with your “overflow:hidden” issue)!
Sleep deprivation does impair judgement.
If anyone can comment on question 2 – I’d appreciate greatly.
As far as I can see, current approach has following drawbacks:
– PNGfix for IE lees than 7 can’t be applied, AFAIK, as shadow image is loaded as div.background-image, not an inline image – correct me if I’m wrong
– for same reasons as above, can’t resize the background shadow, so the whole thing is only flexible in width, but not in height — is the only way to change that loading the shadow image in HTML as img not in CSS as background-image?
Are there any obvious design flaws?
