Hi all.  With respect to this fix:
DBT's Find and Replace dialogs are more flexible about understanding a
user's intent to search for or replace styles. It is now possible to use
Control-< to enter the style as a tag and check the "Find/Replace style"
If you: 
1. manually insert a style with Control-<
2. put a non-style in the replace with edit box 
3. check the replace stylename checkbox
You still get the error dialog.  The error message isn't very pretty either.
Here is the screen shot of the dialog that appeared when I tried to replace
the para style with the linefeed code -- both of which were manually

And for the benefit of screen reader users, here is the text (which I would
read with all punctuation turned on -- also note the non-printing character
that appears after each open quotation -- JAWS says it's "character 28")
There is no style defined with the name "es~para..  Are you sure you 
want to replace all occurrences of the style "es~para. with "l? 
Take care.
