[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] shadow (Shadow)

This element specifies that the contents of this run shall be displayed as if each character has a shadow. For left-to-right text, the shadow is beneath the text and to its right; for right-to-left text, the shadow is beneath the text and to its left.

This formatting property is a toggle property (§17.7.3).

If this element is not present, the default value is to leave the formatting applied at previous level in the style hierarchy. If this element is never applied in the style hierarchy, then shadowing shall not be applied to the contents of this run.

This element shall not be present with either the emboss (§ or imprint (§ properties on the same run, since they are mutually exclusive in terms of appearance.

[Example: Consider a run of text which must have the shadow property explicitly turned on for the contents of the run. This constraint is specified using the following WordprocessingML:

<w:shadow w:val="true"/>

This run explicitly declares that the shadow property is true, so the contents of this run appear with a shadow. end example]
