I generally try to avoid formatting my Word docs with the built-in styles,
because over the years I have found that when I look at other users' Word seats
(for some reason wherever I work I inevitably become the go-to person for anyone
whose Word becomes wonky), the odds are about 50-50 that the user has altered
the default styles, either deliberately or by allowing Word to automatically
modify styles and normal.dot to match manual formatting in the doc, which can
result in documents spontaneously reformatting on other users' systems. What I
do is create uniquely-named styles (typically, "companyname_stylename") in
custom templates, and if I'm going to be handing off docs to others frequently
provide them with read-only copies of the template for their systems.
