I'm new at using OpenOffice as well as OODoc.
I spent some hours trying to figure out why the styles I added to a document using OODoc
did not appear in the Stylist when I opened the document in OpenOffice (1.1.2).
I worked around it for a while and then realized that everything in OODoc seemed to work
as described, so I went back and tried it again, being certain to add the style to the 'STYLE'
member of the OODoc.
Still no luck. My new style did not appear when I opened the document. But when I clicked
on the various buttons in the Stylist, voila, there was my new style. Seems like OpenOffice
neededsome prodding to find all the styles.
HTH someone else.
