In MS Word, question about Copy editing

In MS Word, would you say that the Style Option helps with Copy editing, or would it be under the Proofing feature, (Under Word Options in 2007), that has options like spell and grammar check, etc.?Style would help with formatting.....is that "Copy editing", strictly speaking?

Copy editing would include things such as:
    Spelling
    Grammar
    Punctuation
    Typing and spacing errors
    Capitalization
    Consistency of terms
    Spelling
    Grammar

Please share your insight/opinion. Thanks in advance.

Copy editing is the work that an editor does to improve the formatting, style, and accuracy of text.  It is done after proofreading.  So, yes, the style option would help with copy editing.
