    1. Enter some text into the text box, select the text and from the 'Text Box Tools' > 'Format' menu engage the 'Shadow' feature.
    2. If the text box does not have a background fill color, the font/text shadow color seems to default to light gray (I'm running on Win7, maybe it differs for Vista/XP).
    3. To change the font/text shadow color (you need to counter-intuitively) change the text box background fill color to the desired color (and if you do not want that text box background fill color to show behind your text, set the fill transparency to 100%).

    Unfortunately the placement and size of the font/text shadow does not seem to be configurable in Publisher 2010 for text box text.
