Thanks both Riku and Wayne.

Right now I'm doing some tabloid-size signs (and they look pretty darn 
spiffy !) but I'm seriously contemplating using Scribus for a 100+ page 
program book that I will be producing soon.  I need to stuff some more 
memory into my scribus system first.. I'm using a separate X server to 
give it a break at the moment.. it's a C466 with 64MB...

I've used the paragraph styles before but didn't realize they added 
features over what is available in the properties dialog.
