[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] wrapTrailSpaces (Line Wrap Trailing Spaces)

This element specifies whether applications shall perform line wrapping on trailing spaces in the contents of a line when displaying in it a paragraph. Trailing spaces are all space characters which are not followed by non-space characters on the same line.

Typically, applications do not line wrap trailing spaces, instead allowing an unbounded number of trailing spaces on a line, with the next non-space character starting at the first character position on the next line. This element, when present with a val attribute value of true (or equivalent), specifies that all characters, including trailing spaces, shall be line wrapped normally.

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with the following paragraph of text, including a long interstitial of spaces which become trailing spaces when the paragraph is displayed:

<w:t> This is some text followed by a long number of trailing spaces.
And some more text.</w:t>

The default presentation would not wrap those trailing spaces, so the text at the end of the run would begin at the first character position on the second line:


However, if this compatibility setting is turned on:

<w:wrapTrailSpaces />

Then all trailing spaces would be handled as regular characters when line wrapping, resulting in the following output:


end example]
