Perhaps not as much work as you think, though. First apply the non-Drop 
Caps style to everything, then apply the Drop-Caps style to whichever 
"first" paragraphs you like. Whenever you apply a style to text already 
in place it only applies to the paragraph you select -- ends with the 
next carriage return.
