c) Take the bluured drop shadow, copy that layer to a new grayscale document
of the same size, convert the mode to bitmap, then back to grayscale, and
then copy that new layer back.

It's a cool effect.  I like the diffusion dither option best myself.

Andy, the problem here is to make clean, CLEAN drop shadow transparent images
without a color background.. Many  Web designers have non-Netscape browsers in
mind. You can have the gif's background the same color as the background gif
but it would look horrible on a non-netscape browser. Imagine a white, yellow
or red halo on a grey background.
