Definitions for "Style Sheet"
An important term for a productivity enhancing feature found in page layout and word processing software. Used to speed text formatting and assure more consistent text formatting in a publication. The user can define a set of text formatting options (font, point size, leading, spacing, etc.) and name that set of formatting commands. Names such as "headline", "body copy", "caption" indicate the anticipated uses. Once defined, a style sheet can be applied to copy and that copy will instantly take on all attributes of that style sheet. Additional productivity gains are achieved since the user can redefine a style sheet after it has been applied to copy and the copy can be instantly modified throughout the publication. It takes just a moment to redefine a caption style, for example and modify 200 captions.
