Carriage return in Word2003

Using a paragraph style "Body text" which has a margin of 1" and formatted
for a following paragraph style of "Body text". When typing without an
"Enter", style is maintained. When I want to start a new paragraph and hit
"Enter" (carriage return), a new style is created: "Body text+Indent: Left
0", Right 0". The margin goes to the left border rather than indented 1".

Haven't encountered this one before, but the style name "Body text +
...." indicates this isn't really a style, but Word keeping "track of
formatting".

If this happens when you hit <Return>, then my first guess would be to
check all AutoFormatAsYouType options (well, deselect them all for a start).

Any better?
