In general, I agree with you.
However, there were one or two times when the RevealCodes4Cal macro
showed me what was going wrong with the styles in the cells, that
Stylist was not displaying, or otherwise telling me.

I never found the standard reveal codes useful. Much simpler to simply
export the document to plain text, then open it as a plain text file,
then add the appropriate formatting, than mess around with what styles
might, or more often might not have been used.

and that is not the only video on YouTube showing somebody trying to
figure out where to put gas into their Tesla.
