Calling Word 2007 experts!

I understand how to change the sort order of things (in the styles pane and various ribbon tabs, such as the Table Tools Design > Table Styles section) -- use the Manage Styles button, the Recommend tab, and change the priority level.

But... *some* of the styles are not changeable. That is, when I select them, the priority buttons (Move Up, Move Down, etc.) are disabled. This seems true for all the tables (which are the ones I want to sort), and various other styles where I can't detect a pattern.

And somehow my custom tables (Alert-1, Alert-2, Alert-3) got automatically assigned weird values: last for Alert-1 and Alert-3, but priority 1 for Alert-2, which causes them to be misordered in the ribbon. And I can't find a way to correct that.

Alert-1 is based on Table Grid; Alert-2 is based on Alert-1, and Alert-3 is based on Alert-2. So I certainly don't know how the odd priority orders got set.

Any ideas on how to fix this?
