   Line style -- yes. I can see listbox with "No style" in it and 
understand, what does it mean.

   Whole frame style (everything I can set in properties dialog, called 
by "F2") -- no.

   It likes, you can have styles for characters, but not for paragraphs. 
Or have only styles, which set font weight, but not font color.
