Hello Peter:

Another suggestion

please!  Please!  Please!  Give us the ability of editing style names.
Because if you type a style name incorrectly when creating a style,
there appears to be know way of correcting the misspelled style name
without creating another style with the correct spelling and then
deleting the misspelled style.

sincerely:

Dave Durber
