Is there a way to do this?

I have been unsuccessful in replacing/editing the Markup Styles for rich html text areas with my own list, and am wondering if its possible to do this at all. From what I understand, the styles that control these are in the oob css file.

There are two possible options, depending on what you are attempting to do and what you have available to you. You could take nearly full control or you could go the more common route and merely add your own styles to the pick list. The latter approach is usually done by specifying a custom CSS file for the site and including the '.ms-rteCustom-ZZZZZ' styles in that.

The full control direction was what i was aiming for. Not my choice mind you, but its exactly what I was looking for. Thanks! – John S Jun 18 '12 at 21:46
