But who is to say *your* method is better? I can definitely see situations where someone would *want* the formatting from the subdocument to be applied, and vice versa.

In many cases this is true, but if you take that too far... why provide the option to have 3rd party fonts?

The bottom line is, just because *you* would do something a certain way doesn't mean everyone else will want to do it your way.

Of course, you are right, which is why I said it is "elitist" to think that *my* way is the *best* way.

I suppose people can still build spreadsheets by inserting numbers into cells and then pulling out their pocket calculators to add up the column of numbers (I've seen my students do that).

Or they can individually format all of the paragraphs of 20 or more individual documents to write a book.

Liberty means the freedom to do things the hard way if you want. I won't deny anyone that freedom. But, if I can save them from it, I will.
