Everybody has Word and how difficult can it be?

Indeed it is very easy to write poorly looking documents in (Word and)

LaTeX enforces a lot of things, and this one of the reasons why you
really have to try hard to write poorly looking documents, though I
have seen many determined attempts at doing so over the years, some of
them successful.

The answer I ALWAYS get from Word/LO users is: Styles? What are Styles?

Why is it so hard to get people to use styles?  I worked recently with
a friend to convert his Word document into an ePub.  My advice is
don't ever, ever do this!  Even though I had advocated the use of
styles, he had spent hours using direct formatting.

And it is not just amateurs.  I write for a service that insists on
using Word documents (who knows why?)  and the stuff they send me is
all direct formatting.

I know that this is preaching to the choir here, but I wondered if
anyone had a strategy that convinced others to work with styles.
