I'm trying to create a TOC for a Word template.
I have examples of the headings in the template (for example, in a table
describing typographical conventions). I don't want Word to pick up the
examples and list them in the TOC.
I've tried to reformat a normal style or a style that isn't included in the
TOC, but when I do that, Word changes the style from x to the style I'm
trying to mimic (say, heading 1).
Is there anyway to omit some instances of styles you have selected to be in
the TOC?

To finish this template/style guide, I have to fill in a section on graphics
and Word and figure out this TOC problem.

Create new styles that mimic and are based on the built-in heading styles. Call them things like Heading 1 no TOC, Heading 2 no TOC, etc. Use those for the instances you don't want picked up in the TOC. This is how I make styles to use for the Contents and Tables and Figures headings; otherwise the TOC would list these instances too.
