Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OFFICE-4084) Inconsistencies in the use of paragraph, character and list styles

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-4084?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=77395#comment-77395 ] 

Francis Cave commented on OFFICE-4084:

With reference to Regina Henschel's comments:

(A) The following stylesÂwere defined in Part 2, were not used and were removable, so have been removed:

Paragraph styles:
 * AppendixHeading2
 * AppendixHeading3
 * AppendixHeadingA1
 * Attribute List2
 * Child Element List2
 * Contributor
 * HTML Preformatted

Character styles:
 * all character styles with names starting 'WW' (including Greek, Cyrillic and other fonts)
 * CODE temp
 * Example
 * HTML Typewriter
 * Line Number
 * Ref term
 * Zeichenformat

List styles:
 * AppendixNumTry1

These will all also be removed from other Parts as I go along.

I have kept the following paragraph styles that are not currently used, but which might be useful at some point:
 * Code small
 * Example (but need to decide whether both 'Code' and 'Example' are needed)
 * Example small (ditto)

(B) I have not made any changes to styling in Parts 1, 3 and 4 yet, only Part 2. The paragraph style 'Default Style' seems to duplicate 'Text Body' and, since the latter is used more frequently, I am replacing all instances of 'Default Style' with 'Text Body'. However, if other processes expect 'Default Style' to be used, please explain where it should be used and I will replace 'Text Body' with 'Default Style'. The definition of both these styles are almost identical.

(C) I have increased the left and right page margins in Part 2 to 3.17 cm. I have also increased the top margin from 1.27 cm to 2.54 cm to match ODF 1.2.

(D) I have set footer spacing in Part 2 to 0.79 cm.

Corresponding changes to styling in Parts 1, 3 and 4 will be made in due course.

>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: Part (Formula), Part (Introduction), Part (Packages), Part (Schema)
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.3 CS02
>            Reporter: Francis Cave
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: editorial
>             Fix For: ODF 1.4
> All three Parts exhibit similar problems, of which the main cases are:
>  * Two or more styles being used for the same purpose within a draft, e.g. the paragraph styles âText Bodyâ and âDefault Styleâ both being used for body text.
>  * New styles being introduced in later drafts, e.g. the conditional paragraph style âAppendix Headingâ being replaced by the non-conditional paragraph style âAppendixHeading1â in CSD02 only.
>  * Styles being dropped in later drafts, e.g. the paragraph style âDefault Valueâ, applied to paragraphs that contain default attribute values, was somehow removed from Part 3 in WD13-03 onwards.
>  * Many styles whose purpose is unclear and which appear to overlap other styles, e.g. in Part 3 there are four character styles âAttribute Valueâ, âAttribute Value Fragmentâ, âAttribute Value Instanceâ and âAttribute Value Paramâ. Another example: Part 4 contains list styles âExample Numberingâ, âNumbering 1â and âNumbering 5â (what happened to âNumbering 2â, ââ 3â and ââ 4â?).
>  * Poor naming of styles, e.g. the character style âFurmula Subâ [sic] in Part 3, and inconsistent use of title case in style names.
>  * Lack of stability in style definitions, which seem to change, especially in CSD01 and CSD02, e.g. changes to space above and below paragraphs, font sizes, background colors, etc.
