No, in Word 2007 there are no formatting options in thr Cross-reference
dialog.

Actually, I would hope not.

Sometimes I use cross-references to bookmarks to maintain consistent naming
for GUI items or product components. These things are formatted in a
specific way that I do not want overridden by hyperlink format, even if I
make the cross-reference a hyperlink. Sometimes I do want readers to be
able to hyperlink to the original description of the GUI item or whatever.

As someone else said, there's a switch on the cross-reference field thing to
govern whether the formatting stays linked to the text being
cross-referenced or not.

This way, every use case is accommodated. You can use the switch to let the
formatting be overridden. I can use the switch to make sure it is not.

And I'm happy that hyperlinks outside the current document can easily be
made to look one way, while cross-reference/hyperlinks inside the document
can be made to look another way.
