    Perhaps try this for the IE browsers?
    filter: dropshadow(color=#C6C6C6, offx=0, offy=2);

    Yes, but no.

    Makes the tabs in IE look ugly (end up having 3 colors all mixed).

    Isn't this what XF already does as stock?

    In some areas yes.

    Related-ish: Still amazes me that IE9 doesn't support text-shadow.

    Sounds like you found a great reason to convince your visitors to wake up to 2012 and use Chrome or another free browser they can easily install alongside the icon of E with dust on it that yet again has proven to simply be horrible.

    IE, is always the one browser that things don't look right in, yet do in Opera, Safari, Chrome and FireFox. I'm always getting headaches working with CSS trying to get things looking OK in IE the same as the rest. I wish MS would just burn the thing from Windows and the face of the Web!

    Problem is, you know most web newbies will use IE out the Windows box, so you have no option but to work with it.

    IE is actually almost last on my site

    1) Firefox
    2) Chrome
    3) Safari
    4) Opera
    5) Android Browser
    6) IE with Chrome Frame
    7) Internet Explorer
    8) Mozilla Compatible Agent
    9) Opera Mini
    10) Google Analytics

    I officially do not support IE and only make a "best effort" to do so.

    But for this public resource.... It would be nice to figure out some kind of resolve.

    Funnily enough I was reading for a fix with regards to text-shadow this morning when I was fixing my navigation selected text for IE but they seem to be dirty, somewhat redundant fixes which I myself won't be making. I'm a big fan of text-shadow and use it quite a bit on my site but not the horrible <insert anything above 1px> spreading.

    A nice setting I find is the following I use frequently obviously reverse colouring depending on the background-color:

        text-shadow: 0 0 0 transparent, 1px 1px 0 #ffffff;
        color: #3c3c3c;
