Journal: Shinedot.css: Make Slashdot discussions readable

Journal by Tickletaint
/*    shinydot.css

    Preview: http://img47.imageshack.us/img47/7970/shinydotcrushup8.png

    Only tested with WebKit (i.e., Safari), and known not to work with
    Gecko; see below. Suggestions welcome.

    Known bug: Collapsed comments cause some visual artifacts. The
    workaround, for now, is to set the entire discussion to be visible at
    once. To do this, set the following comment options under user
    preferences:

         Display Mode: Threaded
         Threshold: -1, Uncut and Raw
         Highlight Threshold: -1, Uncut and Raw
         ...
         Index Spill: 0

    Why no support for Gecko (Firefox)? Because Gecko lacks support for the
    box-shadow, background-size, and text-shadow properties and for colors
    specified as rgba() values, and its support for border-radius is
    incomplete. Also, Gecko differs from WebKit in positioning the generated
    content element, though I don't claim to know which behavior is correct.
    Finally, Gecko tends to render type like shit, so I can't really bring
    myself to care that it renders Slashdot the same way.
