store formatting information, such as font size and justification
for elements of text. By changing the
style, you automatically and uniformly modify all other text under that
style. With styles, you don’t have to
keep changing each individual element of text every time it occurs, whether
it a single character, phrase, paragraph, header, or whatever. Besides font type, size, and text, styles
can also format borders and shading, text flow, alignment,
indents, tabs, and line spacing.
