Its a bit tricky - but that's what I live for right :-)

You cannot delete em, you can bury em.

Base a new template on normal. Modify ONLY your good styles. (I HIGHLY
recommend recording this as a macro for use whenever you want). Do NOT touch
the unwanted styles. Save and lock. Your "in use" display will now only show
your good styles.

In macro terms, never modify any style that is .builtin=true and NOT in your
list of controlled styles.

Here's the issue: I am creating a customized document template for corporate
use. I want to delete some of those pesky built-in headings such as Heading
5, Heading 6, and so forth. Is there any way to do this? Or can I somehow
just simply choose NOT to display the built-in styles I don't want?
