Hey all,

First let me apologize for my hasty typo (I meant "fellow," not "fell") in my last post! ;)

At least two of you mentioned "word bloat" as a result of not using (or frequently changing within paragraphs) styles. Can you explain how setting up a group of styles and applying them would "protect" a document? I didn't realize this could have such an impact. How does the size of a document change when I choose to italicize a specific line or leave body paragraphs as "normal"--instead of setting these up in styles?

As for my first question, I worded it poorly. I was interested on the usabilty side and received many responses on the TW/SME side. But, thank you all very much for your input.

Thanks again.
