   * Recommend naming textstyles with the font they use and the font size and scale.

       * Won't this create a bunch of textstyles all with the same font but different point sizes? Yes, it will. Alternative is to set the text height equal to 0, then will only have one textstyle, say Arial. Problem this creates is now each Annotation has a text height by object instead of by style, so if you want to change the height of several objects, will have to select all those objects and change the height, where is my opinion, it's easier to just the textstyle instead.       * Won't this create a bunch of textstyles all with the same font but different point sizes?
