I'm not sure where and at what stage you are trying to map but you should be able to map any style to any style. See http://www.grainge.org/pages/authoring/importing/importing_rh9.htm which also covers Rh10.
Rh does use Word's styles to break the document into topics and usually that is done with the Word heading styles. Word does not have <p> tags as such so I assume you are referring to paragraph styles.
If I am not understanding your workflow, post back.

You are correct in your assumption that I am referring to paragraph styles when speaking of <p> tags. The paragraph styles come over as <p> tags, and I was just thinking of my style sheet. Sorry for the confusion.
Speaking of my workflow, I'm attempting to map the styles for one topic at a time when importing a new Word file. I set up a test project to test out my style sheet, as I am upgrading from RoboHelp 7 right now. .I need to get one document to map correctly to save the settings for future imports.
From the Import window, I click the Edit... button in the Word Document section. After RoboHelp scans the Word file, a list of all the styles from the Word document display. When I attempt to select from the available styles I want to map to from my RoboHelp style sheet, I don't have the option to select the heading styles I created in my RoboHelp CSS file. Does this provide you enough information to give you context on how I am attempting to map the styles?
I found this article that leads me to belive that RoboHelp does not support mapping to a customized heading style from a CSS file. I realize that this is around the printed output, but it states the following:
If custom heading styles aren’t named in the format Heading <number>, they are not treated as headings.
If it doesn't work going from HTML to printed output, I'm guessing that there is not support going from Word to HTML. Am I wrong in this assumption? Do I just need to alter my style sheet to only use the standard <h> tags to fix this issue?
No worries. I appreciate your help. I altered my style sheet to reflect the standard heading tags, and mapping works as expected. It was causing me too much grief to have to attempt to map to a non-standard heading tag. I also moved the content from the custom style sheet I imported to RoboHelp 10 into the default style sheet. I doubt that had any bearing on the issue I was experiencing, but it works now.
Have a great day.
