Subject: Re: [office] User-defined character and paragraph styles

Hello, sorry that I missed again the call last Monday -- too many things to handle at the same time.
I won't be able to participate in the next call either, but I'll be there on June 23...

This question was mainly directed at the authors of other office suites, but hasn't really received
any answer IIRC. What do you think about the concept of user-defined character styles,
and about including it in ODF? I am really surprised it's not part of ODF already :-)

Or is this proposal already at the stage of "no objections therefore it will be voted upon at
the next call"? :-)
