      Description

      [A. Wagner, 2/27/96]

      There is no visual indication of which button is the default button
      in an applet or dialog. Mac, MSWindoz, Motif all support this. It is
      considered a usability bug to not indicate which button is the default.

      [xxx.xxx@Eng 1997-04-30] Another user has requested this:

      There are no default buttons in Java. Default buttons are buttons that can be
      actived by the enter key. This kind of buttons isn't just useful, it's important!
      For example, in an editor, when you want to search something, you usually just s
      trike the following keys:

          ctrl-f
          <search expression>
          enter

      In Java, this isn't possible so far.

      This seems to belong to the classes_swing subcategory.
