The style list provided with Word 97 shows what the fonts look like and
gives some information about the styles. This list can be helpful, but (as
your engineer discovered) custom styles don?t appear in alphabetical order
along with the supplied styles.

Users of earlier versions of Word will remember a different type of Style
list, where everything was in alphabetical order. Fortunately, Word 97
users can add the old Style list to the menu bar (though you can?t delete
the new one, even if you want to). Here's how:

1. On the Tools menu, click Customize.

2. On the Customize dialog, choose the Commands tab.

3. Make sure Save in: shows In the Categories list, click
Format. In the Commands box, find the Style... item (the one with an icon
containing two letter A?s to its left, not the Style: entry with a
drop-down list box to its right).

4. Drag the Style... item to the right of the Style drop-down list on the
Formatting Toolbar and release the mouse button. The double-A icon appears
on the toolbar.

5. Click Close to close the Customize dialog.
