Specifies a value whose contents shall contain a positive or negative whole number that consists of a positive or negative measurement in twentieths of a point (equivalent to 1/1440 inches).

The contents of this measurement shall be interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.

Consider an attribute value of −720 whose type is ST_SignedTwipsMeasure. This attribute value specifies a value of −½ inch or −36 points (−720 twentieths of a point = −36 points = −0.5 inches).

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_SignedTwipsMeasure simple type.
