MS Word Doc >> Why does Word format ALL text instead of just highlighted text?

In Word 2003, when I highlight text to change the formatting, all of the text
in my document is changed. I can hit <Ctrl> Z and the rest of the text will
return to the original format but if I forget it is very frustrating when I
am working in a large document.

happening but never thought of the style automatically updating.
