17.16.18 instrText (Field Code)

This element specifies that this run contains field codes (§17.16.5) within a complex field in the document.

If this element is contained within a run which is not part of a complex field's field codes, then it and its contents should be treated as regular text. If this element is contained within a del element, then the document is non-conformant.

[Example: Consider a complex checkbox field within a WordprocessingML. This field would be represented as follows:

<w:fldChar w:fldCharType="begin" />
<w:fldChar w:fldCharType="separate" />
<w:fldChar w:fldCharType="end" />

The field code is contained in an instrText node which occurs within the field codes portion of the complex field (i.e. before the separator character). end example]

Parent Elements

r (§; r (§



xml:space (Content Contains Significant Whitespace)


Specifies how white space should be handled for the contents of this element using the W3C space preservation rules.

[Example: Consider the following run contained within a WordprocessingML document:

<w:t>   significant whitespace   </w:t>

Although there are three spaces on each side of the text content in the run, that whitespace has not been specifically marked as significant, therefore it is subject to the space preservation rules currently specified in that run's scope. end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by §2.10 of the XML 1.0 specification.

[Note: The W3C XML Schema definition of this element’s content model (CT_Text) is located in §A.1. end note]
