As we've seen, paragraph styles work great with several lines or blocks of text, but what happens if we want to create a style and only apply it to certain words? Well that's where character styles come in. Using character styles allows us to save a set of definitions or rules for a very specific group of characters or words.
Let's say, for example, that you wanted to highlight certain words on your page, this is how we do it:
1. In the Design view, on the Learning page, highlight the word novice in the first line. Then set the following values in the Text panel:
Bold and Italic
Color: Bright Yellow
2. In the Character Styles panel (Window | Character Styles), click on the Create New Styles button in the lower-right corner.
