Stylesheets don't work unless imported.

I tried to create my own stylesheet based on Classic.nb. I saved it as .Mathematica/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/StyleSheets/STHClassic.nb. I then attempted to set the fonts to Arial, but when I select the new stylesheet, the fonts are still Times. If I select Format->Edit Style Sheet and chose to import the stylesheet, I can make the same modifications I did to the "shared" stylesheet, and they go into effect. What I want is a way to create a multi-file document that uses a common stylesheet. Until I attempted doing so, I was under the impression that this was possible. Taking the specific example of ToFileName[$InstallationDirectory, "SystemFiles/FrontEnd/StyleSheets/Classic.nb"], how might I modify a copy of this so that the fonts (in particular, the title cell fonts) are Arial rather than Times for a notebook using that copy? -- "Philosophy is written in this grand book, The Universe. ...

It is written in the language of mathematics, ...; without which wanders about in a dark labyrinth." The Lion of Gaul
