Re: Need good reference for writing Stylesheets

Where do the standard style sheets in the Format >> Style Sheet 
hierarchical menu hide?


How can one add a customized style sheet to that menu?  (other than 
modifying one of the existing ones)


If one has edited a private style sheet for (and within) a Mathematica 
notebook, how can one pull that style sheet out of that notebook, assign 
it a name, and put it somewhere?  (as well as into the Style Sheet menu)


Some of the standard named style sheets in the Format >> Style Sheet 
menu seem to have styles associated with the different command keys that 
are different not just visually or "format-wise" but functionally.   One 
time when I stepped through these named style sheets with one of my 
notebooks open, just to see what different styles looked like, it seemed 
to leave some of the cells in my notebook seriously screwed up (from the 
nature of the damage, my guess is one of the styles had made some of the 
non-Input cells in my notebook into evaluatable cells, and they didn't 
like it).   Should there be a warning about this?


More generally, are these standard styles illustrated and discussed in 
any documentation anywhere?


Several other applications that I use also have named styles (EndNote 8, 
for example, has 1,189 (!!) named styles for formatting journal 
citations, which is insane, not to say criminal!).  Several of these 
have at the bottom  of their "Styles" menu a set of more or less blank 
style templates named "Custom 1", . . .  . "Custom 6" to use for making 
your own styles.  Wolfram?
