17.11.23 separator (Footnote/Endnote Separator Mark)

This element specifies the presence of a separator mark within the current run. A separator mark is a horizontal line which spans part of the width text extents.

[Note: The separator mark is typically used within the context of separator footnotes or endnotes. These footnote and endnote types define the footnote/endnote used to separate the contents of the main document story from the contents of footnotes or endnotes on that page. end note]

[Example: Consider the following page in a document, where some text is referenced by a footnote that is located at the bottom of the current page (with the separator circled in red):


The line separating the document text from the normal footnotes is the footnote separator, and is represented by the following WordprocessingML:

<w:footnote w:type="separator" w:id="0">
      <w:separator />

In this example, the footnote has a content which consists of a single separator, which is displayed as a horizontal line across part of the text extents. end example]
