in order to ues dojox.fx.Shadow to add visual interest to Dijit widgets, we'll need to reduce the number of image requests it's making. I think ti's possible to get to 2 or 3 images max.

also, we'll need to port dojox.fx.Shadow into Core

Here are a few more things to think about before using this in dijit (as per IRC chat):

  • would like shadow to automatically resize when, for example, the Dialog's size changed because the user moved from "Tab 1" to "Tab 2" (imagine a TabContainer inside a Dialog)
  • IIRC a main reason we stopped using this was because of memory leak / slowdown issues on IE. Need to dig through mail archives etc. and test to see if that's an issue.
  • needs to look acceptable on drop-downs that appear north of the trigger node (because trigger node is near bottom of viewport

I think it's better to do this with CSS3. Closing this out.
