The change appears in the shared stylesheet notebook, but not in the working
notebook using it.

This is on SuSE Linux 9.3 intel.  Perhaps this is a "feature" in the Linux
implementation of Mathematica?  Clearly the stylesheets can effect the
display of notebooks, and in particular, Title Cells.  This happens with
the stylesheets provided with Mathematica.  I tried to read the code of the
stock stylesheets to determine how they control the Title font, but it was
not clear to me.
