Ditto. In my experience, the styles come through, but with not quite the
same attributes as in the Word template. Also, if you have a paragraph
containing word that has a character style applied, the Word version will
have that character style applied forward to the beginning of the
paragraph, and suppressed from that word to the end of the paragraph. I
haven't found a way around going through and manually reapplying all the
styles. If anyone has other suggestions, I would love to hear them.
