17.9.8 lvlJc (Justification)

This element specifies the type of justification used on a numbering level's text within a given numbering level. This justification is applied relative to the text margin of the parent numbered paragraph in the document.

If omitted, the paragraph shall have left justification relative to the text margin in left-to-right paragraphs, and right justification relative to the text margin in right-to-left paragraphs.

[Example: Consider the numbering level defined below:

<w:lvl w:ilvl="8" w:tplc="756C1446" w:tentative="1">
  <w:start w:val="1" /> 
  <w:numFmt w:val="bullet" /> 
  <w:lvlText w:val="•" /> 
  <w:lvlJc w:val="left" /> 

In this numbering level, the given numbering symbol is left justified with respect to the text margin, therefore the numbering extends left from the text margin towards the text (assuming a left-to-right paragraph). end example]

A numbering level's text is the numeral, symbol, character, graphic, etc. used to create a numbered paragraph as defined by the lvlText element (§17.9.12).

[Example: Consider the numbered paragraphs below:

1) Example one

a. Example two

• Example three

The numbering symbol in these three numbered paragraphs are "1", "a", and "•", respectively. end example]

val (Alignment Type)

Specifies the justification which should be applied to the parent object within a document.

The possible values (see below) for this attribute are always specified with left specifying justification relative to the leading edge of the paragraph, and therefore change semantic between right-to-left and left-to-right documents.

[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML fragment for a paragraph in a document:

  <w:jc w:val="end" />

This paragraph is now right justified on the page for a left-to-right paragraph, left justfied for a right-to-left paragraph. end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_Jc simple type (§17.18.44).

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