  <h1>Isolating Box Shadows</h1>	
  <h2>A Simple & Often Misunderstood CSS Fundamental</h2>
  <p>To isolate a single shadow we apply a negative spread and offset in the desired direction, then add a blur radius of equal distance to compensate. For inset shadows, the spread remains constant but we apply an offset in the opposite (-ve) direction. For multiple sides/shadows, simply combine any of the desired single-side rules into a comma separated list.</p>
