Layering type with CSS z-index

A MyFonts webfonts feature article. The summary: Layering text adds depth and visual interest to headlines, mastheads and other large display type on your site. There are plenty of fonts that are specifically designed for this technique. Font families designed for this technique will typically have two or more versions of the font, such as a shadow, fill, outline or a texture. It is especially important that the fonts all have the same metric values, because making manual tweaks to spacing and kerning is hard enough in DTP applications; in CSS, it is virtually impossible. The typefaces below all work right out of the box. The basic principle of this technique is that it takes two identical lines of text, applies a different version of the font to each (such as an outline and a fill version) and then layers one above the other.
