How do I create a text border


#1

Hi guys. I was wondering if it is possible to do a border around text. That is around the edges of the type, not the box. If so, how would I do that?


#2

Text shadow, 0 pixel distance, 1px size, 0px blur. You're welcome smile

Ah... Thanks for the swift response. Just a question, where do I set the 1px size? Is that in the Effect section as well? I only have the blur and distance parameters...

Oh... Didn't see it live when I was writting post. I tought that is the same in shadows for blocks and text...

Now when I think about that and look for answers there is no way to add border around the text. There is a workaround for that using

text-shadow: -1px 0 black, 0 1px black, 1px 0 black, 0 -1px black;

but that is not working for higher values of shadow (-3 etc...) The border is simply not visible properly. You might want to do that with image or maybe someone could say something more about that...

Btw, here is a nice website with what you can achieve with text shadow feature smile
