Amen bro. Actually, LyX has a feature like meta-style-lock (in addition
to the wysiwym nature of the proggy in general). I once used it to
limit the styles (they weren't called styles, it's been a while since
I've been lucky enough to use lyx) available to the type of document in
use (naturally, because it only uses styles and not microformatting at
all, as opposed to abi's feature, which limits to styles, from
microformatting). So now my two favourite dtp/wp-related programs also
allow me to foster my love of "bondage" (yes, EAZen, you heard me).
What?! Don't gimme that look, rwerner said it first! *g*
-MG, hoping to be back in the game soon
