Hi Michael,

I apologize for taking days to reply. As I noted to Harald, I had to get through a week's 
emergencies to be able to think about what you both had written.

If you save your document as .fodt - Flat Opendocument, you can then open the document in a plain

spelled out.

Thanks. I did so. It was instructive, but what I learned most (in a couple hours of study) was to 
get a sense of how much time I might need to build tools to parse a Writer file (which I presume 
you have done already) -- and I just do not have the much time now, or even this year. (It would be 
rewarding to return to that someday.)

However, regarding the specific question of inheritance (from "-None-" or from "No Character 
Style"), your answer was particularly helpful:
- ... "none" means you get the "create new style" dialogs with no parent style filled in.  This 
means the character style definition will be more complete, and rely less on the parent style.

Yes, that I understood.

- the "No Character Style" option while typing doesn't insert XML for a character style, but moves 
the editing cursor after the already open Character style if you're at the end, or creates an end/open for 
the style if there are more visible characters and leaves the cursor in between these tags.

If I select "No Character Style" as the parent of a Character style, do I not get the same effect as 
selecting "-None-"?

Thanks again,
