Ok, second time was the charm for me. I'm not sure what I did wrong the first time when attempting to chop off the bottom of Antarctica, but the key tool to use in QGIS is called "Reshape Feature". There a decent description of how to use it here: gis.stackexchange.com/a/21651/1770. After removing the southernmost portion of Antarctica, I was able to successfully reproject the map.

Thank you, Matt.

The 1:50m shapefile contains data south of 85 degrees and reprojects without issue. Also, I'm still interested in an answer to both of my questions. Exactly what steps may I take to fix the 1:10m shapefile so that it can be successfully reprojected?

The post I link to does not answer the following questions: Is there an error in the 1:10m shapefile (since the 1:50m shapefile reprojects just fine)? How may I go about fixing the shapefile so that it can be reprojected? All the post says is "delete the objects around the south pole", and I'd prefer not to delete Antarctica.

Thanks for the example! I might be able to use this to accomplish my goal.

This is basically the conclusion I reached before posting the question. No, is doesn't appear that the vanilla GMaps API can do it. I could draw SVG paths in a custom layer on top of the map and possibly use SVG to create an "inner glow" effect, but that won't work consistently in all browsers. Drawing multiple polygons like you suggest sounds both complex and kludgy, but might work. I'd love to see an example.

Even if I could get at the underlying DOM element that the GMaps API draws (and it's not clear that I can), the box shadow CSS will not help for an arbitrary polygon.
