I tried to create my own stylesheet based on Classic.nb. I saved it
as .Mathematica/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/StyleSheets/STHClassic.nb. I then
attempted to set the fonts to Arial, but when I select the new stylesheet,
the fonts are still Times.  If I select Format->Edit Style Sheet and chose
to import the stylesheet, I can make the same modifications I did to the
"shared" stylesheet, and they go into effect.  What I want is a way to
create a multi-file document that uses a common stylesheet.  Until I
attempted doing so, I was under the impression that this was possible.

Taking the specific example of 
how might I modify a copy of this so that the fonts (in particular, the
title cell fonts) are Arial rather than Times for a notebook using that
"Philosophy is written in this grand book, The Universe. ... But the book
cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language...
in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, ...;
without which wanders about in a dark labyrinth."   The Lion of Gaul
