Why don't you start with the Default style sheet and modify it for your own 
needs? That's the easiest approach.

The principal problem with all of the WRI style sheets is that the Text Cell 
FontSize is too small. If you look at any textbook or research paper, the 
text font size will be the same, if not larger, than the font size used in 

The Section heading has a Frame line on the top that could be eliminated. 
Also, the Title Cell and Section Cells might have a smaller font. In all of 
the WRI style sheets the gradation in font size is too great, and Text 
cells, the most important cells of all, get squeezed down to nothing. So 
just fix the font sizes and get rid of any extra adornment and it will look 
pretty good.
