Glowing Text

This example is a very simple demonstration of a way to make your text 'glow'. It also includes another very slight way to do it, but I wouldn't recommend using it actually.

This example is pretty much a script, and how it would look with a different background color. :)

Pretty cool actually. What was the thing on the mouse supposed to do? Well, not counting that, I give you a 9/10.

I could do that...but I wont. :o

The thing on the mouse lets you see how it looks with a background behind it, of course you can change the background, so it is pretty useless.

Well, yours redraws the text a couple of times, while mine adds a smooth glow effect using blend modes. ;)

Yes, I tried the other too, and Alert's is much better.

A pixel based version would impress me.
