In this paper we study the role of Stepanova's continuous separating families in the class of linearly ordered and generalized ordered spaces and we construct examples of paracompact spaces that have strong base properties (such as point-countable bases or σ-disjoint bases), have continuous separating families, and yet are non-metrizable.
