[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] marH (Top and Bottom Margin for Frame)

This element specifies the top and bottom margin height for a single frame in a frameset document, as follows:


This height is expressed in pixels.

If this element is omitted, then no top or bottom margin shall be used for this frame.

[Example: Consider a document that has a frame, where the margin height has been specified and is represented as the following WordprocessingML:

  <w:marH w:val="594"/>

The marH element has a val attribute value of 594, which specifies that this frame has a top and bottom margin value of 594 pixels, resulting in 594 pixels of space between the content and the top and bottom margins of the frame. end example]

Parent Elements

frame (§



val (Measurement in Pixels)

Specifies a value whose contents shall contain a positive whole number, whose contents consist of a positive measurement in pixels.

The contents of this measurement shall be interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.

[Example: Consider an attribute value of 960 whose simple type is ST_PixelsMeasure. This attribute value specifies a value of 960 pixels. end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_PixelsMeasure simple type (§17.18.67).

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