Ditto, we use "C". But we've managed to end up with a format named "Bold"
too. We use that when we want to make something bold and one of the named
formats doesn't apply. ;-(

Using character formats isn't necessarily foolproof. Last week, someone
accidentally updated one of our formats and made it use a particular font
etc, instead of being "as is" for everything but the property it wanted to
change. Don't suppose anyone knows of a way to prevent that?

Cheers, Rebecca

If the methods are

A. Click the B and I buttons, or press Ctrl+B and Ctrl+I.
B. Select Bold and Emphasis from the Character Catalog.
C: Create special character formats with meta-information (purpose or
meaning).

then I use C, although it may appear sometimes that I'm using B. While my
brain was recovering from a bad sector, I named a character format "Bold"
rather than "Strong". I also have some formats that use Italic instead of
Emphasis. The horror, the horror!

As Andrew noted, this may result in more tags or elements. Perhaps this is a
good thing, if it makes us re-examine our typographical conventions.

Or:

C: Create special character formats that indicate the purpose or meaning of
the text (rather than their intended appearance) and apply them.
