    Try this:

    Tools > Templates and Add-ins > Organizer button.

    From the Styles tab, you can view the styles available in here and compare it with your template file. To choose a file that is not listed, click one of the Close File buttons so that you can get an Open File button for which to bring up the template you need to perform the compare of the two documents.

    This will work for now.  I was hoping for something that would show the differences between individual styles, but I can use this.
