--- Comment #1 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
When the "new" 'Formatting (Styles)' toolbar was implemented for bug 106781--it
was known that there would be a disconnect between the stateful "button"
control of the legacy 'Formatting' toolbar's Bold, Itallic, Underline, Double
Underline, Strikethrough, and Overline that each apply Direct Formatting.

The new Formatting (Styles) toolbar buttons will indicate the Character
style(s) applied to a selected text run. The character style applied also
toggles a corresponding Bold or Italic formatting button on the Formatting
toolbar--that linkage can be confusing, is it a Style or is it the DF?

However toggling either formatting button will not modify the Style--rather it
applies DF against the selection over top of the style.  Removing the DF (menu
Format -> Clear Direct Formatting) will restore the selection to its style as

IMHO this is correct and desired behavior--though we could possibly disconnect
the Style applied from the new Formatting (Style) toolbar from manifesting
either the Bold or the Italic button on the legacy Formatting toolbar.

It is kind of useless, as just the Emphasis and the Strong Emphasis manifest.
