The style editor was always crappy. Most people won't notice due to the 
lack of comparison.
Word processors like Fireworkz and TechWriter got it right to handle 
layered styles and effects. Easy to edit and easy to apply. And also 
easy to get rid of them again with a region editor which made it easy to 
select all modifications that were applied to a text and to delete or 
modify them.
In comparison, MS Word is a mechanical typewriter.
