beveled appearance

the bevel is the bright or dark edge used on raised or lowered objects in a user interface to give them a 3-dimensional appearance. This pseudo-3d style is quite popular: by giving buttons a raised appearance, they appear to be pressable. Bright edges are usually on the top-left and dark edges on the bottom-right, consistent with a top-left light source.
