Point of information for anyone who doesn't know: The master
document feature has been broken in MS Word since at least version
2.x - for about four versions and six or seven years. You've been
able to have hours of frustrating fun trying to use paragraph styles
in secondary text frames for about the same length of time.
Long-time masochists can probably add to this list, and correct the
exact time these problems have existed; personally, I've suppressed
the horrors and only recovered this memory while undergoing
regression therapy in connection with my abduction by aliens.

Oh, well. At least it teaches everyone the importance of backups.
