[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] outline (Display Character Outline)

This element specifies that the contents of this run should be displayed as if they have an outline, by drawing a one pixel wide border around the inside and outside borders of each character glyph in the run.

This formatting property is a toggle property (§17.7.3).

If this element is not present, the default value is to leave the formatting applied at previous level in the style hierarchy. If this element is never applied in the style hierarchy, then outline shall not be applied to the contents of this run.

This element shall not be present with either the emboss (§ or imprint (§ properties on the same run, since they are mutually exclusive in terms of appearance.

[Example: Consider a run of text which must have the outline property explicitly turned off for the contents of the run. This constraint is specified using the following WordprocessingML:

<w:outline w:val="false"/>

This run explicitly declares that the outline property is false, so the contents of this run do not appear as if they have an exterior outline around them. end example]
