Subject: General question on not tracking document styles


Is the non-tracking of styles in documents analogous to not tracking the
results of recalculation of values in a spreadsheet?

That is if I change a value in a style, which result in the appearance
of text subject to that style changing, I can track the change of the
value in a style, but the text that "changes" as a result of that new
value in a style is not tracked. Yes? The text will change from the
application of the style with a new value so it would be tedious to
track every place where text had changed. Yes?

Because styles have implied semantics, I think tracking changes to them
could be important but that doesn't require tracking every bit of text
that changes because of the change in style.

Hope everyone is having a great week!
