Thanks to both posers for terse and useful recipe here.  Two brief 
extensions:

1)  I'm assuming one can give this new stylesheet a new name before 
(or while?) installing it?  Can one also rename it, using the Mac 
Finder, afterwards?

2)  Suppose you want to further edit this stylesheet later on.  Is the 
recommended procedure just to navigate to it (in the FInder, if you're 
on a Mac); open it (as a notebook); edit it; then re-install it?
