Settings for Rich Text and Table modules, as well as Sections, contain a selection of style properties, giving users access to a high degree of customization in their ePortfolios. Advanced Customization options allow users to assign styles based on content type, allowing for multiple styles to exist in a single module.  When used with the Apply styles feature, style properties make it easy to apply a custom style to an entire ePortfolio.
