CSS Drop Shadow on Bottom Side Only

Whatever the value of the third value (the blur), set the fourth value (the spread) to the negative of it and voila! You have a bottom side only drop shadow with css.
-moz-box-shadow: 0 6px 4px -4px gray;
 
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 6px 4px -4px gray;
 
box-shadow: 0 6px 4px -4px gray;
See what I mean . . .
