Okay, thank you very much. I thought I had read somewhere that there was a way of doing this, but it was probably something I misunderstood.

Normal.dot or Normal.dotm in newer versions is what is used when creating a blank document from scratch. You can also, after having done so, reconfigure virtually everything in that document to be different, font, size, color, etc., etc., etc.
Documents carry their own attributes with them once they have been created. No reference is made to Normal.dot(m) for an existing document. Whatever it is you want changed is going to have to be changed on a document-by-document basis (unless there's a utility I don't know about for doing so in batch - but even then it won't be via anything related to Normal.dot(m)).
