Subject: RE: Question about (OFFICE-3451) "should" and "may"


That is what I thought was intended.  It makes setting up and using a small set of common styles for a document very easy to do.

Aren't they just ignored when they don't matter for an element that references the style, directly or indirectly (i.e., by inheritance or default)?

There is set of different style families, and each family has 
restriction by the schema which formatting properties may be used.

Some families, like that for charts, can be used for different kinds of 
objects. However, not all properties that the schema allows for that 
family actually matter for all kind of objects. If they don't matter, 
they are ignored.

I think you are right that neither "should" nor "may" are really 
meaningful in regard to OFFICE-2451. I've added a different suggestion now.
