[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] pPrDefault (Default Paragraph Properties)

This element specifies the presence of a set of default paragraph properties for the current document. The actual paragraph properties are stored within the pPr child element of the current element.

If this element is omitted, then the default paragraph properties for the current document are non-existent (i.e. there are no default paragraph properties in the document, and the defaults are therefore application-defined).

[Example: Consider the following definition for the document defaults for a WordprocessingML document:

<w:jc w:val="center"/>

The pPrDefault element is a container for the set of default paragraph properties for this document. end example]
