Understanding Styles

Word's styles provide a great deal of power and flexibility when it comes to formatting your document. A style is a collection of formatting specifications that has been assigned a name and saved. For example, a given style can specify 14-point Arial font, one inch indent, double line spacing, and full justification. After you define a style, you can quickly apply it to any text in your document. Applying a style is much faster than manually applying individual formatting elements and has the added advantage of assuring consistency. If you later modify a style definition, all the text in the document to which that style has been assigned automatically changes to reflect the new style formatting. Word has several predefined styles, but you can also create your own.

Plain English
