Word 2010 is a little different.

I never cared for newer versions of Word, but in looking at this control over styles feature, I think it has some great options to give document owners more power. A document owner can set a style and restrict that style so no one can change it or restrict that style so no one can use it. Power is an addictive thing...

This could get a bit freaky for other users of the document. Restricted styles that are used in a document still show up but they can't be changed, used, or copied and this looks stranger when the document is viewed in 2003 than in 2010. It is like these are ghost styles.

I still like using Word 2003 because I am familiar with it and that is comfortable for me. In a multi-user environment, though, I think 2010 can really rock. It is certainly easy enough to develop in 2003 or whatever I feel like using and then save that document in 2010 with restricted styles and nearly absolute format control.
