While I agreed with Peter's previous proposal for the 5th. character
style to be Liberation Mono regular, not emphasis (italic), I don't see
the need for any extended character styles.
The whole purpose of the Documentation Template is for all the guides to
have a consistent set of agreed styles and style naming we all use.
However, I have just been looking back through some recently published
guides, where there appears to be a number of additional character
styles invented "on the fly" and duplicated names added for identical
In light of the above, trying to reach any kind of consensus on a new
guide template is a totally futile exercise and I don't intend to make
any further comment on the subject.

Another think about the new character style and here are my thoughts.
I think Widget is not informative enough as a name and suggest UI Text, or something similar.
In UI dialogs you can have two levels of UI text, for example from the Position and Size dialog.
Position — main section in bold text
Position X — sub-section in normal text
Position Y — sub-section in normal text
Size — main section in bold text
Width — sub-section in normal text
Height — sub-section in normal text
Therefore there should be two new character styles — UI Text Bold and UI Text Normal.
As you can see, my suggested new name clearly identifies when this character style should be used.

I uploaded a sample file (actually based on the current 7.0 template
file) with a proposal for the 5th character style to represent dialog
box object ("widgets").
