Although StarOffice is similar to Microsoft Office, not all terms and concepts are the same.
For example, the formatting and layout of a Microsoft Word document is determined by a *.dot template file.
In StarOffice Writer, the formatting and layout of a document is defined by styles. Styles provide greater flexibility and more control over the appearance of your documents than the template concept.
The following table matches Microsoft Office concepts with the equivalent StarOffice concept.
