That is funny. This is the same problem I had just now and was wondering 
about it also.

I found that if I shut down Mathematica after making changes to the style 
file itself (after saving the changes ofcourse), then start up Mathematica 
again, and open a notebook and force that notebook to use that style file, I 
had better luck of having the changes show up in the notebook.

This is 5.2 on XP
