Gerald Bourguignon wondered: <<I've been trying to figure out how to
insert a text frame with a border and have the border one color and
the inside of the text frame a different color (e.g., a 2 pt black
border with the inside of the text frame yellow).>>

Not a Frame user, but until you get an authoritative Frame-specific
answer, here's something you can try that works well in a few other
programs and thus might work in Frame: insert a 1-cell table, then
edit the border and fill properties of the cell.
