[SS] Problems using Styles

There are 3 usability problems we are encountering using Styles:

1) If you click in the edit window, select a style and then start typing, the style is not applied. You have to type the text first and then select it before applying the style - this is counter-intuitive based on other applications (MS Office particularly)

2) If you have applied a style to text, you cannot remove it. This is particularly a problem if you type a line of text, select the line, apply a Style and then hit carriage return. The style carries over to the next line and cannot be removed - even using the Format Eraser (only by editing the underlying HTML)

3) You cannot replace a style - select text, apply a style, hit return. Reselect text and choose a different style - it is applied in addition to the previous style (look at the underlying HTML shows nested SPAN classes).

If you use the "Format" feature instead of "Styles" then this works fine and as expected (i.e. none of the problems above), but it doesn't appear as straightforward to push CSS styles into the Format box.

I tried that but using the 'Format' box applies the styles to the entire line. You can't select individual words and apply a style. Unfortunately this renders the editor useless for many applications. I had to revert back to an old version of the editor that doesn't have that problem.

The reported item "1" is a DUP of #253.

Items "2" and "3" have instead been fixed with [774].
