Default Possible to {includetext} without taking on styles of target?

I'm using Word 2003 on Windows XP to produce a set of small user guides for a
client. I created a template and am "knocking off" one guide at a time. I
learned yesterday that my client needs to include several of these user
guides in a sprawling training manual that she maintains. As I complete more
guides and then make updates, she'll need to keep the training manual in sync
with the user guides.

Her training manual uses Normal.dot and there is overlap in styles between
her template and mine (Heading 1/2/3, List Bullet, List Number 1/2, and
possibly a couple others). So far, my content looks awful when I use
{includetext} to pull it into her training manual. (I'm actually including --
thanks to advice in this forum -- bookmarks rather than the entire document,
to eliminate front matter).

Is there any way to {includetext} documents/bookmarks into a target document
*without* having the included content take on the styles of the target
document?

If it isn't possible, can anyone suggest a different way to approach this
problem?

Thank you very much.
Kevin McDonough

See the Include text tutorial at http://addbalance.com to see how styles
interact.
