comment Can I define a paragraph so it contains different styles?
See this answer. It describes how to use different styles by word and within a paragraph. I'm not sure if it will be useful to you, as it is more table based, and you're using text in an unfamiliar way to me. I don't know much about this, so no criticism intended!

comment What is a polite way of talking about a recently-deceased person?
@JanusBahsJacquet it is not Yiddish. Malvolio thought it might be in his comment (not in his answer). RIP is 'Rest in Peace' in English, but was 'Requiescat in pace' before that. It can be found on 10th century Christian and Jewish gravestones. When saying "Mr. XYZ, may he rest in peace..." the speaker would sometimes cross herself if Roman Catholic. There are references to that in 19th century literature. There isn't an exclusively Christian connotation though, as Jews and other faiths use the same expression without making the sign of the cross. This is a good answer! It is truly ecumenical.
