In Word documents, replace bolds, italics, various sized fonts, and type decorations with appropriate styles and make use of headings. This provides structure and navigation and benefits everyone because Styles allow you to keep things consistent and more easily update a document. It’s usually much easier and more consistent than trying to achieve similar effects with typography. Styles also allow you to utilize the Navigation Pane and create an automatic Table of Contents.
