The following information from the ECMA International Standard ECMA-376 can be useful when working with this class.

Specifies a positive measurement value, specified in twentieths of a point. This value is interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.

Consider the following WordprocessingML element with a val attribute containing a positive measurement in twentieths of a point:

<w:… w:val="720" />

The val attribute has a value of 720, specifying that this measurement value is 720 twentieths of a point (0.5"). This value is interpreted by the parent element as needed.

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