I don't understand your first point. What do you mean by "Browse" option? I can't possibly think you mean that the file browsing dialog only shows 2 of n notebooks in some given directory. Yes, it is the case that notebooks with Saveable->False should be able to save, and don't in 8.0.1. But that won't affect stylesheets created using the method I outlined. And that bug will be fixed in a Mathematica incremental update which will hopefully be available soon. Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
