"A style is a collection of formatting instructions
that you set once and then apply as needed throughout a document.
For instance, in Writer, you might create a title style for
italicizing the names of all the books mentioned in your document.
"Using styles takes a different perspective and may require more
initial planning than manual formatting, but it makes reformatting
much easier. It also makes tools like outline numbering or
generating tables of contents far simpler to use.
"You can see a list of styles in any OpenOffice.org program by
selecting Format -> Styles and Formatting, or by pressing the
F11 key. Either way, you open the Styles and Format floating window
that you'll want to keep open as you design your document and
format it. If you want, you can move it outside the editing window
so it doesn't cover any of the document."
