Indesign and paragraph style problem help?

Ello

I am having a problem with indesign CS3 and paragraph styles that I never come across and I hope some can help me out.

I have a large word doc that I have placed into indesign as normal.

I have received a indd doc with existing paragraph styles.

I am having issues with the styles:

For example I have a say "heading 1" which is assigned a font in bold.
When I am applying the paragraphs style it will not turn to bold, even though it says it is bold.

This is also happening with the font, and the size of the font.

I tried defining new styles of my own and applying. They work as an override but when I clear the override, it changes back to the 'light" but keeps the font.

I have reloaded and cleared my font preferences and tried again.
But it keeps happening.

I have tried a fresh indd doc. with my own type. and it works.

The doc is huge so I dont wish to override styles it would be silly.

And even if I strip the word doc of formating, again the doc is huge so I would rather not go down that path.

Any suggestions. I have never come across this before and it is driving me crazy? Perhaps there is something really simple I am missing here?

Thanks ali
