Borders for dataframes and legends

I was wondering if there was an online source or ESRI has an expanded list of styles for legends or dataframes? I am particularly interested in chamfered corners.

Mapping Center Answer:

For clarification purposes, we understand that the chamfer corner is usually an effect which is applied as a simple bevel around a point at a distance. 

In ArcGIS version 10, in the Data Frame Properties, we only have control over the rounding of a corner of a border, but not the ability to apply a chamfer edge. Since legends use the same style element properties, the answer would apply to them as well.
