What "style"s are available in a notebook?

We can use the Style[expr, "style"] expression where "style" is a specified 
style in the current notebook. How could we find the complete set of such 
"styles"s that are available? Specifically, I am thinking of styles that may 
come from cascading style sheets and are not directly visible in the current 
style sheet.

For example, in the first example in tutorial/GridsRowsAndColumns the style 
"TableHeader" is used. Is this a style that is in the Documentation style 
sheets, or is it one that is available in Default style notebooks? It 
appears that it is not generally available and Mathematica substitutes 
something like the "Text" style.

Mathematica obviously makes substitutions because if we put in a nonsense 
style we get output with no warning message.

Style["Some text.", "znmjdhr"]

So basically I would like to know how to obtain a list of all valid "style"s 
available in a notebook environment.
