Android Question Webview text-shadow


Licensed User
Putting css text-shadow on text does not work properly.

The x position is correct but the y is not.

e.g. text-shadow: 1px 1px #ff0000;

I can find no mention of this problem anywhere on the internet.

Using a webview to navigate to the page below:
results in red text appearing about 50px above the text.

It seems as if the shadow is relative to the top of the base container rather than the text.

I hope there is an answer to this and someone can help me.

I have got the Android System Webview update via Google Play some minutes ago. I have checked and the shadow is displayed correctly
