This highlights a third incorrect assumption about styles in ODT docs:

- there is consistency in the style names used across different ODT 
editing environemnts

> It seems to be a predefined style ?

I just loooked in an ODT file for the first time and was pleasently 
suprised to find sensible style names and not codes like "T1" as was 
used in SXW. Perhaps the document Web Maestro Clay is referring to 
started life as an SXW?

In SXW, if I remember rifhtly, T1 was the predefined style called "Title 
  1" in the drop down styles list.
