          Here's an excerpt from my RazzleDazzle eBook that shows you a way to do
          that.

              try this, draw a simple line using the pen tool. Change the stroke, usually its 1 Pixel Hard to Unnatural 3d Glow. Increase the stroke size ( lets say 8 ) , it looks fine at this point, but u could also add a live effect. Add ( Shadows and Glow > Glow )

              Test the settings a bit ( Increase the opacity , the amount or the softness )..

              For text , when u select ur text , take a look at the properties panel. You will see the stroke color of your text, clik it, the stroke options would appear , click it again , then you will see the stroke modes available. hope that could help.
