ctb, stb, wishlist?

I thought I posted this earlier, but it disappeared. This maybe a feature in Acad2002, or maybe a wish list from us. We are on acad2000 and considering switching to stb. We have a few clients who have their own cad standards based on ctb files. What we are looking for is to create a drawing with our own contnet and client standard details. If plotted with our ctb this will create big problems in legibility. We would like to have an stb file with our style and a client style then select the client details, assign the correct style and our plans,using lineweights, to our style. Our client details are using default linewieghts, and when it would plot, their detail would be 1 lineweight as defined by the stb style. We would like the stb to be able to use ctb pens in the style set up. This would give us the most flexability when working with consultants and client drawings. Is this a feature of 2002, or am I just dreaming...?

Bishop -

For future use, there is a site at http://discussion.autodesk.com/ that
lists the main headers for all the public discussion groups on the
Autodesk server. If you click on AutoCAD the site then will list the
versions of AutoCAD supported and all the general technical issues sites
such as printing, display, mice, connectivity, networking, etc. The site
lists both the HTTP web side and the NNTP newsgroup readers URLs.
