Word outline mode (last time I used it was Word 5 for Mac times, 10 yr
ago, WinWord 2 was probably almost the same) is based on heading level
that is associated to the stylesheet.
So you had:
Some other text
and so on. You could tell not the the "text" completely, you can
show/hides level, as well as collapse some part.
One of the stupid things was that it was based on the style sheets....
Outline mode was just a supplement to Normal and Preview view modes. If
I have time, I'll send som shots.
More III was indeed quite a little bit different as it offered Outline
mode by default and that you really defined outline level, not style
sheets. And on a side feature, it could generates the slides from that.
