Word productivity

I was reading this article titled Ten things every Microsoft Word user should know, and noted that I try and do most of this already. Much of it is similar to web publication, and when you're trying to separate content from presentation. On the web, you use style sheets, in Word you apply styles.

While I realize most people don't use styles/headings/etc, I've found in the long run, it really does save time and energy. I had to recently reformat a 60 page document. The original author had apparently used styles, as when I turned on the formatting codes, I could see all these Word Perfect tags, but they hadn't translated over into Word. Since I was in a time crunch, I faked it, and turned out a crap document, but if the styles had been available, it would have been so much easier . . .
