How do I choose to position an object stroke on the inside or on the outside of a shape (i.e. a square or a circle or irregular shape)—rather the default stroke that straddles the shape border? Neither he Stroke panel nor the Appearance panel seems to offer this choice. Is it someplace else? I've been using "stroke alignment" options as long as I can remember in Quark.

Thanks,

Did you perhaps overlook the ‘Align’ options in the Stroke panel? :/

For objects with mutliple strokes, it would be really nice if there was an option to align it to the center/inside/outside of the stroke that lies beneath in the appearence stack, instead of the curve

You might want to look at using a duplicate of the object with the contour tool.

Use a "stroke sandwich", the top and the bottom stroke being the same color, "aligned" stroke placed inbetween.
The stroke width field can count, so all you need to do is to type the values that are adding up.
