OK, I've created a blank notebook called "myDefault.nb" that I want to 
use as the default stylesheet for all (or at least the vast majority) of 
my notebooks.

And, I've stored it away in my user Library:


And, I've used the Option Inspector (with a random notebook open on 
screen) to set the global option DefaultStyleDefinitions to this file, 
so it will become my default style. 

And, it all seems to work:  myDefault.nb appears in the Stylesheet menu, 
with rules above and below it; Default.nb above it; and Article, Book, 
and Creative folders below it.

OK, so far, so good? . . . I've done this right?   If so, now:

1)  Can I get myDefault.nb to show as checked in the Stylesheet menu?

2)  So far, I've changed the typefaces for some of the styles to suit me 
-- all OK.  But what's the option I need to modify to get rid of the 
rule or overbar in the Section style?  (which I personally think is not 
just an unnecessary but a very unattractive default choice)
