experiment: drop shadows for Safari

If you've got a recent Safari build, give this demo a spin. Being able to do drop shadows without images is a pretty neat trick, but it only works on Safari for now. Firefox 1.5 only has stub functions in it's <canvas> implementation where it's shadow property getters and setters should be.

I'm working on a more portable variant to support FF, which we can then turn into a Dojo widget. Stay tuned.
