Chapter 13. Style Sheets > Using style sheets

Using style sheets

A style sheet is a set of paragraph or character formatting specifications. Whatever text is highlighted when you click a style sheet name on the Style Sheets palette (or execute its equivalent shortcut) is formatted instantly. But style sheets aren't just used for the initial formatting; they're also used for editing. If you modify a style sheet, all the text with which it is associated will update instantly. A document can contain up to 1,000 style sheets.

Using style sheets will relieve you from zillions of hours of tedious styling and restyling, freeing you to concentrate on other tasks. And here's another benefit: When you use style sheets, you can rest assured that your typography is consistent, whether you're working on a small brochure or a huge, multi-file book. Every single character in this book was styled via a style sheet. Enough said.
