Joanie (and Don),

This will be simple enough to specify as follows:

- Replace stylename shall be unchecked and disabled if any character not
valid in a stylename occurs in the search or replace text.  This means among
other things that neither spaces nor codes (anything appearing in gray) may
appear in the search/replace fields if the checkbox is to be enabled or
checked.

Would that help avoid the confusion?  Part of me thinks that perhaps it
wouldn't -- you'd only be frustrated that you couldn't check the box.

Don, come out of that hole. <grin> Your point is still valid -- whether it's
a "bug" or not.  And I'm not just saying that because I want my suggestion
implemented. <grin>  If it confused us, surely it has and will confuse the
average end-user.
 
Take care.

Joanmarie you got it.

Ouch!!! I am gonna crawl in a hole.

I guess I needed another cup of coffee this morning.

I forgot and entered the stylename with the control-shift-coma instead of
just typing it in. Oh well.

Withdraw my bug report but for one thing, it shouldn't say es~para. in any
case since styles are not represented that way anymore.

Ok so I am trying to save face grin!!!
