I've recently learned to do style mapping when placing text from Word, and I've worked out most of the kinks, but I'm running into one glitch: When an italicized word shows up in a paragraph, it and everything after it shows up in the original Word font until the style changes again. I've changed the original regular italics to an emphasis style in Word, and mapped it to a character style in InDesign. It's an easy enough find-and-replace fix, but I'd rather go the ounce-of-prevention route to save the pounds of many future cures.
P.S. Bonus points if you can name the book without Googling. ;^)
