I'd like to get some general opinions about paragraph styles.
I am a huge fan of paragraph styles, page styles, and character
styles. I wish they were more widely used.

It makes me wonder if there is a way to make them more accessible to people
less inclined to invest time in their technology as opposed to getting a
task done.
What I find useful when teaching about styles is to emphasise two
things: how it makes it easy to change the formatting of something
like section titles (change the style and all occurrences are changed)
and that by using styles a consistent look-and-feel is created which
makes documents look more professional.
I would prefer it if there was no direct formatting. If the buttons Numbering, Bold, etc. actually applied a style on their use. They could all have their own style if need be assigned to the button. For the normal user the fact they are styles is hidden but it would mean that the document is not full of direct formatting. One of the most frustrating things is fixing other peoples documents that are full of direct formatting.
