"An abomination."


Using direct formatting as a reason to dislike the sidebar is ridiculous.
The sidebar can be changed, if need be. If anything, having a sidebar fits
using styles much better than a toolbar does. Let me explain: In the
toolbar, you pull styles in a list that gets in the way of the document,
which may end up covering the exact thing you are trying to format. In a
sidebar, this element would cover other controls that you aren't using at
the moment, which is fine. 

Don't misunderstand me, I use styles--they are very useful and definitely
the "right" way to do things. But we shouldn't push people into using them
until editing, using, and managing styles is at least as intuitive as direct
formatting is now. 
"> I don't like menus."
I didn't say that. I said the opposite of that.
