Exactly what settings are changed when you use Style Set, Word 2003 in Word 2010?

ArZi(2) asked on
Exactly what settings are changed with you use Style Set, Word 2003 in Word 2007? Are these the only changes that are made:

The font (changes from Calibri 11 to Calibri 12).
Line spacing (changes from Multiple at 1.15 to Single)
Spacing after paragraphs (changes from 10 pt. to 0 pt.)

It looks like the Quick Styles gallery also changes.

Thanks in advance.

The "Word 2003" style set is intended to make the document's styles like those in the default Normal.dot template in Word 2003. The changes that it makes in the Normal style are those you listed -- the 12 pt font size, Single line spacing, and 0 pt space after paragraphs. It also changes most of the other styles in some way, for example:

Heading 1 changes from 14 pt bold, 24 pt before and 0 pt after, color Accent 1
                               to 16 pt bold, 12 pt before and 3 pt after, color Automatic

Heading 2 changes from 13 pt bold, 10 pt before and 0 pt after, color Accent 1
                               to 14 pt bold italic, 12 pt before and 3 pt after, color Automatic

There is one thing that doesn't change in Word 2010 when you apply the Word 2003 style set: The font of each style (Calibri, Cambria, etc.) in Word 2010 is determined by the theme you select on the Page Layout tab of the ribbon. The default fonts in real Word 2003 documents are always Times New Roman in the Normal style and Arial in the Heading styles. To get that in Word 2010, besides choosing the Word 2003 style set, you would have to click the Fonts button on the Page Layout tab and choose the Office Classic font set.

Your thorough, specific answers are very much appreciated, Jay, as always. So I assume Word's margins are also not affected by a style set but rather are controlled by normal.dot or normal.dotm?
Also, I noted that under Change Styles, Fonts, Built-in, there are two sets of fonts listed for each set. For example, Office 2 has Calibri on the first line and Cambria on the second and the icons show and upper- and lowercase "A." What is the significance of showing two fonts.

The 2 fonts you mention are part of the "Theme" concept introduced in Office 2007.  Really short intro to themes, if you limit your formatting changes to theme related options, when you change the theme, all of the formatting will change with it.  So, if you limit font customization selections to those 2 fonts you mentioned (first one is for heading, second for body) then when you change the theme, the new theme will be reflected through the whole document.

Take a look at a color selection drop down, like the Font color or Background drop down color. At the top you may see the "Automatic" color (not in all drop downs, inconsistent implementation), then the set of "Theme Colors" and below that the old school "Standard colors" and below that the custom color selection.  So when you are applying color, if you select from the rather blah "Theme" color choices rather than the "Standard" or custom colors, the next time you change the theme, your color selection will change to match.

The styles with the underlined backward P and lowercase "a" icon indicate "Linked styles"

<snip http://blogs.msdn.com/b/microsoft_press/archive/2012/06/11/why-use-styles-in-word-excerpted-from-stephanie-krieger-s-documents-presentations-and-workbooks.aspx >

Have you ever selected just a few words in a paragraph and then applied a paragraph style, only to have the style apply as if it were a character style—in other words, just to the selected text? If so, you were using a linked style.

In Word 2010, you see this additional style type in the Styles pane and as an option when you create styles through the dialog box. Linked styles are just paragraph styles that you can also apply as character styles (that is, apply only the font formatting from the style to just part of a paragraph).

For Windows users, linked styles were first exposed in Word 2007. Before that, you could use built-in linked styles as both paragraph and character styles (such as the styles Heading 1–9), but there was no visual indication in Word of which styles were linked, and you could not create your own linked styles. In Word for Mac, this is still the case with Word 2011.

In the Styles pane, notice that paragraph styles display a paragraph symbol, and character styles display the letter a to represent a character. In Word 2010, linked styles display an icon that includes both the character and paragraph symbol.

Nearly half of all built-in paragraph styles in Word 2010 and Word 2011 are actually linked styles.


Note:

One more little style-related tip for Word 2010 VBA users: if you check your document styles by type in VBA, you’ll see 93 paragraph styles as noted earlier. If you check the number of linked styles, it will indicate zero. Word 2010 VBA includes a constant for the linked style type but recognizes those styles as paragraph styles.
