Default Table of Contents/Word Template Problems

Hi,

I've been trying to create a table of contents as part of an overall
template--I found a template guide on line and it seems to work pretty
well...I've been trying to go through it step by step, but have gotten
some directions wrong and then I'm using 2003, the guide was written
for 2000.

My problem: I tried to create a TOC just as placeholder to see how it
works. The TOC picks up my "Title" and "subtitle" styles--and uses
them for the TOC, which I don't want to do. (I created these styles
only for the cover page.) Word also sort of incorporates my Headings 1,
2, and 3, but not like I want it to.

I tried going to the TOC options dialogue box--where it did show that
the TOC would be picking up my Title styles. I unclicked those boxes,
but Word still reverts to the first choice...picking up the titles.
It's like I haven't done anything.

I'm assuming this has something to do with setting something up as a
template.

Another question: Does anyone know of a good step by step instruction
guide to creating corporate/research (I work for a university
non-profit that wants to look professional when creating
reports/documents) in Word 2003?

I'm confused by the put space before and after--and you're not supposed
to use paragraph marks (still not clear about why) so you have to have
a style for everything you do, right? Even the title?

I think I finally figured out about making headings different on the
first three pages...but event that was trial and error.

Thanks in advance and a general apology for the vague(ish) questions...
