Two more anomalies. No matter how I change the paragraph styles the 
beginning paragraph remains in Bitstream Bold Italic on the page 
proper.  It says it is in something else in the story editor and the 
but I cannot change it on screen. 

Also, when I go into the paragraph style editor the list of available 
fonts is much more restricted than when I list fonts in the story 

The template in question is Brochure_1.  I will try to build a similar 
file in 1.3.5 and see how that goes.
