This is still too time consuming. More appropriate would be something like OO.o's "Stylist" or the "Style Sheets" window in QuarkXPress (less flexible, but more concise). Either of them should be able to float on the screen as well as being "docked" (but that's already somewhere on the roadmap, IIRC).

Another way to go would be a "Styles" tab in the "Properties" palette.

I would also avoid this approach. Pull down menus are time consuming (although necessary for many settings). I would not use this for stylesheet at all. What is really needed is full access to them through user definable keys. See the related bug 0001118 for more.

As for the palettes, Christoph is expressing also my view on this.

1.3.4+ has now a style manager which allow style to be applied quicker than a drop down box can
