In what sense do you want permanence?  Permanent for the notebook that
is using the Demo stylesheet, or for all notebooks on that will use the
Demo style sheet?  

If it is the former, then you want to import a private copy of the Demo
style sheet into your notebook and make the changes there.  If you want
to make these changes available to other notebooks, then all you have
to do is to save the style sheet notebook (as you would a regular
notebook) as the file Demo.nb in one of the directories where
Mathematica looks for style sheets.  If you are working under Macintosh
or Windows, then it suffices to save it in 


This will overwrite the existing Demo.nb file.  If you are on a Unix
system, where you don't have the necessary read-write permissions to
modify the Mathematica installation, then you can save them in a
directory with path


Mathematica looks here before looking in the directory in the central
