Support for multiple monitors

I was just wondering if Android had support for multiple monitors,
i.e. a displayport monitor and a standard vga/dvi/hdmi monitor?

Many thanks,

1. Custom Drawables and Shadows

Anyone know how to add shadows to custom drawable objects? I'm trying to 
create a custom Dialog window with a translucent blurred background and 
a shadow behind the content wrapped window.

I have the following drawable...

<shape xmlns:android="">
<solid android:color="#77DDDDDD" />
<stroke android:width="2dp" android:color="#FFFFFF"/>
<corners android:radius="10dp" />
<padding android:right="5dp" android:top="4dp" android:bottom="4dp" />

and I've tried several things, first I tried adding a shadow node, with 
the shadow attrs shadowColor, shadowRadius, shadowDy and shadowDx. I've 
also tried adding the shadow attrs to my style as such....

<style name="Theme.CustomDialog" parent="android:style/Theme.Dialog">
<item name="android:windowIsFloating">true</item>
<item name="android:windowNoTitle">true</item>
<item name="android:padding">10dp</item>
<item name="android:backgroundDimAmount">0</item>
<item name="android:windowBackground">@drawable/filled_box</item>
<item name="android:shadowColor">#000000</item>
<item name="android:shadowRadius">5</item>
<item name="android:shadowDy">3</item>

Which creates a horrible looking shadow behind the text on the buttons.

Anyone know how I can get the shadow on the window itself?

Thanks for the help!


2. Problem in sending messages with special characters

I donot have a device.I am testing on the emulator.

When i send a message(problematically and through the device) with special
characters i am not able to view them  properly.

For eg: when i send a message from one emulator to another say "~Ha".I see
only the character "~" in the other emulator.

But when i send the same message from the DDMS ,i donot see the problem.

Is this a problem with the emulator or am i missing somthing..

sm.sendTextMessage("5556", null, "~Ha", null, null);
