EVALUATION We can not come up with a method of darkening the center of the recessed titled border to match the orginal Nimbus spec with in the constraints of what can be done by a look and feel. This is mainly due to the fact that borders are painted last so even if they paint the center they wil paint over the content. So we are drawing the recessed rounded border but not darkening the background in the center. Also the text is a very dark grey where it is black in the spec. This is to get around the visual differences in the way Java renders Fonts vs the way Photoshop renders them in the design spec.

EVALUATION The border needs to be drawn. We also need to look into a method for making the background of the title border area darker. Also need to see if we can enhance some of the other borders created by the BorderFactory such that they look good by default on Nimbus.
