I find it frustrating that when I try to reproduce the effect of a Word
style sheet in Mathematica I am frustrated by certain limitations of what
can be done with Mathematica style sheets. Mathematica's typesetting model
(or whatever it's called) does not appear to be a superset of Word's
typesetting model. As an example, try doing multi-column typesetting in
Mathematica, where you rapidly find that you have to explicitly lay things
out in 2-column arrays of cells! That would be fine if it happened
automatically behind the scenes, but it doesn't!
