Notebook Style problems?

I have a Mathematica 5.1 notebook, running under Mac OS 10.3.9 and using 
the default style sheet, that's not cooperating, and I don't understand 

1)  I keep setting the File >> Printing Settings >> Page Setup setting 
for this notebook to landscape rather than portrait, but this setting 
doesn't stick -- it reverts to portrait -- every time I Save + Close, 
and then Open again.  

Shouldn't this setting stick?  (as is the case with every other kind of 
Mac document I know of)  Or do I have to Import a Private Copy on the 
style sheet?  (except I just tried that, and it doesn't seem to make 
this setting stick either)

2)  I want to set the font size for the Subsubsection prototype to 14 
point Helvetica.  It seems to have gotten permanently set to 18 point -- 
larger than the Subsection font size! --perhaps as a result of my 
earlier editing attempts.

Editing the style sheet, selecting Prototype for Subsubsection, and 
using Option Inspector to find FontSize shows 18 as the size it's set to 
and only offers . . . , 10, 12, 18, 24 . . . in the drop down menu.  I 
can select the "18" shown as the current setting and type 14 -- or 
select 12 from the drop down menu, but neither of them stick when I 
click elsewhere in the window.

How do I make this change?
