Maybe, maybe not. My experience, though, tells me that using styles in
Word benefits the end-user in many ways. It helps maintain page layout
and appearance. It also helps prevent the dreaded Word Bloat (documents
increasing to behemoth proportions).
It also helps the writer by making it easier to apply styles and change
the look of the document.
