You could create a drop shadow effect by adding another background  
text frame behind the text frame containing the chapter number with  
the chapnum variable in it formatted to for example a light grey. THen  
shift this text frame down and to the left or right a step or two.  
That would approximate a shadow effect.

I don't have FM open now, so maybe it'll look like total crap, but it  
might be worth a shot, and would be easier than creating custom  
graphics for lots of chapter numbers.
