Introducing Text-Stroke

Dave Hyatt:

WebKit now supports stroking of text via CSS. In existing Web pages today, the glyphs that are drawn for text are always filled with a single color, specified by the color CSS property. Sometimes authors may want to stroke the edges of the glyphs with one color, and fill with a different color. By stroking text and not filling the interior at all, you can achieve an outline effect (this option exists in TextEdit for example and in OS X text field context menus).
