Safari CSS text-shadow changes in Leopard 10.5.2

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

I’ve just applied the recent Leopard 10.5.2 update to my iMac at work and noticed that there seems to be some CSS rendering issues with Safari when the text-shadow property is applied to text.

text-shadow: #000 2px 2px 1px; before the 10.5.2 update:
Safari text shadow in 10.5.1

text-shadow: #000 2px 2px 1px; after the 10.5.2 update:
Safari text shadow in 10.5.2

Changing the code back to text-shadow: #000 1px 1px 1px; produces the the same effect as before the update, but now older versions of Safari render the text without the shadow. Is the old version or the new version applying incorrect pixel values?
