Word 8, aka Word 97. I'm updating a template from Word 6, and this is
one of the enhancements I'd like to make.

Uh, I don't think those'll work, though it's a clever idea for other
purposes. It's not a constant that I need to display.

Essentially, it's the equivalent of a chapter title being carried over
in the Styleref field in the header, except that there's no place in
the document (as designed) to put the chapter title, only the header.
Right now, I'm creating a new section every time the header changes
(every few pages), but that's exceedingly inelegant.

That's why I was hoping I could put text formatted as hidden in the
document to serve the purpose as the origin for the Styleref field,
but if it's hidden in the style, it insists on being hidden in the
styleref. Very annoying.
