Quite honestly, I rarely use character styles, but in this case where
you're changing two characteristics (9 points to 11 and normal weight to
boldface), the character style would help ensure consistency throughout
the document. With the italicized "/v.t./" I don't see any advantage to
using a characters style as you're only changing one feature (normal to
italics). Just highlight the text and hit <ctrl-i> and you're done.

Until, for example, you later decide word types should be blue as well as italic... If you've just hit ctrl+i all the way through to make them italic, you'd have to find all occurrences and change them all again. If you've defined and used a character style, you'd just change the style once and all the word types would turn blue.


You're absolutely right. I stand corrected.
