CSS Box with Shadows

C
Published in: CSS

This is a live demo of a CSS box with shadows - it should render as expected in most modern browsers while it will display a standard 1px border in older browser.

This is the actual CSS and HTML code that renders the shadowed box - it is written in pure CSS3 and requires no images.

<style>
#box-with-shadows {
  color:#222222;
  background-color:#f9f9f9;
  border:1px solid #eee;
  box-shadow:0 4px 16px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
  -moz-box-shadow:0 4px 16px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
  -webkit-box-shadow:0 4px 16px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
  display:block;
  font-family:arial;
  font-size:10pt;
  width:80%;
  margin:20px auto;
  padding:20px;
  position:relative;
  z-index:10000
}
</style>

 <div id="box-with-shadows">
   Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
   Phasellus nec lorem ipsum. Integer non lorem urna.
   Nullam ornare mauris vel risus iaculis ullamcorper.
 </div>
