  -Moz-box-shadow: 10px 10px 25px # ccc;
  box-shadow: 10px 10px 25px # ccc;

The above code set the shadow for X and Y displacement to 10px and the last one set the color of the shadow. For text shadow use following code:

  text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px # ccc;

  In text shadowing we can also use opacity to transparency.

4. Using custom fonts in your CSS

Now it is common practice to use custom fonts. In CSS3 @ font-face can specify their own fonts, but because of copyright issues involved, the actual use of fonts is limited (You can even use hindi font if you want).
  Syntax is as follows:

   @ Font-face {
  font-family: 'Anivers';
  src: url ('/ images / Anivers.otf') format ('opentype');
  }

  Supported browsers: Firefox 3.1, Safari, Opera 10 and IE7 (requires a lot of trouble if you do not bother, you can achieve this functionality in IE, please refer to: make font-face work in IE)

5. Use RGBA achieve transparency effects in CSS3

We can achieve this effect using PNG images (but in the IE browser support is not good). Using CSS3, we can achieve a transparent effect using following code.

  rgba (200, 54, 54, 0.5);
  background: rgba (200, 54, 54, 0.5);
  color: rgba (200, 54, 54, 0.5);
  color: # 000;
  opacity: 0.5;
