For the sake of compatibility testing, we should specify these things.
The L&F is the Java look and feel, unless the user or program specifies
something different.  Several properties might be ignored by a L&F, 
either because the L&F doesn't support the relevant feature or because
the feature just doesn't apply to the L&F.

SUGGESTED FIX Specify in the UIManager class description and javax.swing.plaf.metal package description that the Java look and feel is the default L&F (the one used if the user and programmer don't specify something else). Change the documentation of methods such as JToolBar's is/setFloatable and AbstractButton's is/setFocusPainted to say that the property might be ignored by some L&Fs that don't implement the feature in question.

EVALUATION Add to the javadoc for the javax.swing.plaf.metal package and UIManager classes that the Java look and feel is the default. Adjust the documentation for the following properties to indicate that a L&F might ignore the property: AbstractButton: focusPainted, rolloverEnabled JButton: defaultButton, defaultCapable JCheckBox: borderPaintedFlat JColorChooser: dragEnabled JComboBox: lightWeightPopupEnabled JFileChooser: dragEnabled, controlButtonsAreShown JInternalFrame: iconifiable JList: dragEnabled JPopupMenu: lightWeightPopupEnabled JProgressBar: stringPainted, indeterminate, borderPainted JSplitPane: oneTouchExpandable, continuousLayout JTable: dragEnabled JTextComponent: dragEnabled JToolBar: floatable, borderPainted JTree: dragEnabled, showsRootHandles, scrollsOnExpand kathleen.walrath@Eng 2001-03-13
