Hi David,

I've found the best way is to create an image from your text-- black
on white, then gaussian blur it using a Sanke library call (I actually
use my own but Wilhelm figured out how to do convolution matrix math
even faster), then set it as an alpha channel for a solid colored
image (created by script: see fillImage in one of my download image
manipulators). It's how I add all my drop shadows to ButtonGadget
text.

best,
Chipp
