Hi Michael, everyone,
Here's an experimental mockup of how style editing could work:
changes a few things in an effort to be less daunting and more
comprehensible to newbies. All the old features should still be there,
though, just under different terminology.

It looks nice. The approach, however, is similar to one that might be used in Ms Office 2003. There are two possible problems with it: - It is harder to define many styles at once this way than in the traditional dialogue box. On the other hand, the visual approach you have is great for fine tuning or for adding one or two styles to an existing document. - There has to be a way to define, and more importantly to see the specifications that are linked vs those that are not, those that are defined in relative vs absolute terms. In your example, I should see that Heading 5 is defined using Heading 6 as base style and that it will be followed by Body Text. I should also see that the only elements modified from base style are typeface (+Bold) and line (-Underline).

Groups vs linking a style to a style.
I actually see it as two very different concepts. We already know how a style may be linked to another "base style". But apart from that, I see groups such as: styles used for the main document, styles for annexes (typically smaller type)

You also suggest that bundled styles should now be deletable. I think it is a great idea, at least for all non-essential styles. In other words, it might be easier for the casual user to see by default the following: Body text, Headings 1 to 4.
