It does. But it would be so much simpler if the family wasn't needed to uniquely identify a style. Of course I have adjusted my implementation now, so the problem is 'solved for me', but I still think that things would be easier if this wasn't needed (and any OpenDocument file generated by KOffice will have unique style names even across families). -- David Faure, firstname.lastname@example.org, sponsored by Trolltech to work on KDE, Konqueror (http://www.konqueror.org), and KOffice (http://www.koffice.org).
