OK I've just tried LaTeXiT and the shadows work  in Keynote v3  and v 
4 as well. So the difference is in the way TS (changed?) the pdf 
export with the selection tool. LaTeXiT exports pdf as `PDF vector 
image' or `PDF with outlined fonts' both work i.e. transparent with 
only the characters casting a shadow. Not with TS.

So how/why is TS different?
