I am looking for a way to make the text in my widget stand out. As if it were embossed or engraved into the widget, to give it a more 3D feel.

Does anyone know of a font that can provide this look?

Thanks!

Some kind of text-shadow. Look at the main dashboard download page on the apple site. They have a cool 3D engraved effect on the navigation bar.

For more control, use Z-values for identical offset text. You can select all elements of the shadow, including color, size, and angle
