Wow. So if your document is like

  heading
   subheading
    bodytext para
    bodytext para
   subheading
    bodytext para
    bodytext para
     sample code
    bodytext para

and you want to change the style of the body text, you go and set the
fontname, fontsize, typestyle, alignment, first-line indent, etc repeatedly
for each instance of the body text? With a style sheet, you just change the
spec for the style, and all parts of the document which are of that type
will automatically reformat accordingly. A real timesaver, yes?
