Yes, I want that (relatively easy to do) plus a visual representation of each style (not so easy) kind of like the way recent versions of word actually show the style, not just the name in the organizer.

I've found a couple of things online, but they all require you to have fully commented the code with a set syntax to generate the style guide. I want something that will give me the visuals without needing the extra code.

I'm not sure what it is you're looking for here - you've got a body of
CSS rules and you want to create a style guide for other authors? So you
want a list of class names for authors to invoke consistently as they
write new content? Or have I misunderstood?
