I'm having a similar problem, I think. I need to get changing text
into a header. The usual way would be with a styleref field, but
there isn't any place that the text that would be referenced is used.
I was thinking I could create a style in the document that was defined
as hidden text, and that works. Unfortunately, the text in the
styleref field shows up as hidden as well, unless I define the
paragraph in the document as un-hidden, which loses the whole point of
the exercise.

Any ideas? I don't want to have to start fiddling with ASK fields if
I don't have to when Styleref is so elegant.
