Hello MathGroupers,

I'm trying to create some ButtonFunctions that modify cell margins. I 
have something that works very well, so long as the CellMargins option 
appears explicity in every cell---as, e.g., in

Cell["abc","Text", CellMargins->{{10,0},{0,6}}].

But with something like Cell["abc","Text"] or Cell["abc","Text", 
I'm stuck. The only thing I can think of is to provide the default 
values from the style sheet ``manually."

Is it possible to determine the value of an inherited cell option? If 
one could somehow force inherited cell options to appear explicitly, 
that would provide a solution. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Selwyn Hollis
