The OpenOffice styling system is tough to get a handle on. I may  
choose the style 'Heading 2', but it seems to be that if the style  
didn't come directly from the Forrest sample file in the Forrest plug- 
in directory (even if those styles have been 'loaded' into the  
current document via Styles Load [x] Overwrite), Forrest doesn't  
generate the style as expected.

I was able to workaround the list problem to some degree (95%  
effective) by selecting above and below the list area and applying  
the 'Default' paragraph style.

Unfortunately, I am having additional problems applying 'Heading x'  
styles. They get translated into <p class="Heading 2"> elements  
instead of <h2>:

<p class="Heading 2">Transaction Types Supported</p>

I think the problem is that I'm starting from blank documents and  
importing the Forrest-related styles, rather than starting from the  
Forrest documents. I'm going to see about modifying  
startup system, so new documents are based on Forrest's 'openoffice- 

One other relevant point, is that I'm using NeoOffice/J (a Mac OS X/ 
Java port of based on 1.1.5 which doesn't require X11).
