The text-shadow property is used for adding shadows to the text. Roboto Serif is one of the font styles designed to create a comfortable and frictionless reading experience. Because of the minimal and highly functional, it is useful anywhere in the code. Due to the great set of weights and widths across a broad range of font sizes. 

You can also specify the horizontal shadow (3px) and the vertical shadow (3px). Next, add a blur effect (0px) to the shadow. Then, you should add a color (red) to the shadow. Transparent color in CSS adds background elements visible from another top element of the page. Using background-color property and color, we can apply transparent color. If we take the background color as transparent, it makes the background's backside elements completely visible. 

The -WebKit-text-stroke is a CSS property used to specify the width and color of strokes for text characters. This is the simplest property. Here, we use Webkit-text-stroke-width and webkit-text-stroke-color properties for the given text. The stroke width is 1px, and the stroke color is black. We have to declare our text character within the div tag.
