So does Word. I use this feature regularly, for the reasons you mention.

Win, if this works, please explain it. In Word, you can change the
formatting of highlighted text, but as far as I know, it's not a "character
format." That is to say, in Frame you can name this format "DefinedTerm"
and then easily change the properties of all text to which the "DefinedTerm"
character tag has been applied. For example, I could decide I wanted all
the DefinedTerm tags to be blue and Italic, and then change my mind and make
them red and bold at a later date. I don't have to use search & replace to
do this. If Word has this feature, I would love to be able to use it - I
couldn't find anything in the help, other than changing the format of
highlighted text.
