"If you want to share documents with other people, then using Arial, Courier,
Helvetica or Times is a good idea - although your efforts may go to waste anyway
if you're giving them an MS Word document, considering how many people change
the default template without knowing."

This puzzles me, as I'm under the impression (and have experimented to reinforce my impression) that changing the definitions in the template on a target machine has little or no effect on the definitions in any document sent to that machine.

The only time any template's style definitions override the document's style definitions are when the user has checked the "Automatically update document styles" check box in the Templates and Add-ins dialog box. The check box is normally clear.

Can you go into more detail about what you're experiencing?
