Joanie,

There is indeed a defect in this area, though I'd be hard pressed to say
whether it is a bug.  (This is because I don't think that any coder made a
mistake.  Rather, we never discussed DBT's design limitation -- no spaces in
stylenames -- with the developer of SWIFT, so we couldn't expect this to
work right.)

You can get around this issue by changing the spaces to underbars in the
.mws file.  It's hardly ideal.  Now may be a good time to improve things.

Hi all.  For a while now, user-defined styles that contain spaces are not
recognized by Duxbury.  You can map them with SWIFT and they show up as
expected in your .mws files.  But they seem to be ignored when you import
your document into Duxbury.  Since spaces are clearly acceptable in built-in
word style names, I assume this is a bug.
