Understanding Styles and the Style Task Pane

Word styles provide an excellent way to manage the character and paragraph formatting in a document. A style is a grouping of formatting attributes identified by a style name. You can create styles for text that contain character-formatting attributes such as bold, italic, or a particular font size; these types of styles are called character styles. You can also create styles for paragraphs that include paragraph attributes, such as alignment information, indents, and line spacing; this type of style is called a paragraph style.

You view the style names in the Styles and Formatting task pane (see Figure 10.1). To open the Styles and Formatting task pane, select the Format command, and then click Styles and Formatting.
