Hi Peter,

Re:  Now may be a good time to improve things. 

PLEASE, pretty please, even!

This will make quite a few "pressing" users with spaces in
Style names very happy, especially in the Oxford, UK, area!

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.
