The whole point of CSS is to make sure that you can easily make changes to large projects with relative ease.
If you have to use the tool bar to override your styles, do it with care as when it comes time to update your help file, it can become a nightmare.
I find that if you are constantly adding the same overrides over and over again, just create a style that will do this for you.
I have found myself going back in the middle of my project to add styles to the style sheet, then replace the overrides with the new style. (this can be time consuming initially, but updating the project later becomes a real breeze).
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply; you have cleared all my doubts.
Not all toolbar functions override styles in a style sheet.
If you select a word or phrase that has a Normal style and click the Bold button, then you have instituted an inline style.
If you select several paragraphs and click the Numbered List button, you are not applying an inline style. Rather, you are instructing RH to create an OL list with several LI items. The actual style used for that list (and list items) will follow the style for OL in your style sheet, or use the HTML default if there is none.
You can also create "interim" styling by adding some CSS styles in individual topics (within the HEAD section).
Remember, CSS means Cascading Style Sheets. That is,
Topic inline styles override:
Topic HEAD styles, which override:
External style sheet styles.
