Paragraph and character styles
Wow, I'm just the most interesting person on the whole internet, aren't I? First BIC codes, now formatting. Yaw-wn. Wait till I get on to enthusing about my new book that turned up today: A guide to Indesign and XML. Mmmm - knowledge...
Something that I feel strongly about is using paragraph and character styles. I feel strongly about it because when other people don't use them it makes my life more difficult. Snowbooks authors (because every last one of you don't use styles, except Rob): fear not, I'm not cross at you. I never understood these things until I was forced, by dint of being a publisher, to learn about them. But if you did happen to learn how to use paragraph and character styles, it would be fabby.
So I've done a short series of videos about styles. Here's the first one. It's a bit boring, so don't watch it whilst operating heavy machinery.

The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.
Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
