17.4.71 tcPr (Previous Table Cell Properties)

This element specifies a previous set of table cell properties, the modifications to which shall be attributed to a revision by a particular author and at a particular time. This element contains the table cell property settings which were previously in place before a specific set of revisions by one author. Each unique property is specified by a child element of this element. In any instance where there is a conflict between the table level, table-level exception, or row level properties with a corresponding table cell property, these properties shall overwrite the table or row wide properties.

[Example: Consider a basic two row by two column table as follows:

If the cell shading in the first cell is set to red with revision tracking enabled, as follows:

This revision is specified as follows in the associated WordprocessingML:

<w:tcW w:w="4788" w:type="dxa"/>
<w:shd w:val="clear" w:color="auto" w:fill="FF0000"/>
<w:tcPrChange w:id="2" …>
<w:tcW w:w="4788" w:type="dxa"/>

The tcPr element beneath the tcPrChange element specifies the set of table cell properties which were in place before the current revision to the document. end example]
