17.9.14 name (Abstract Numbering Definition Name)

This element specifies the name of a given abstract numbering definition. This name can be surfaced in order to provide a user friendly alias for a given numbering definition, but shall not influence the behavior of the list - two identical definitions with different name elements shall behave identically.

If this element is omitted, then this abstract numbering definition shall have no name.

[Example: Consider the WordprocessingML below:

<w:abstractNum w:abstractNumId="4">
  <w:nsid w:val="5C294B5B" /> 
  <w:multiLevelType w:val="multilevel" /> 
  <w:tmpl w:val="6F8A81B0" /> 
  <w:name w:val="Example Name" />

In this example, the given abstract numbering definition is named Example Name by use of the name element. end example]

Parent Elements

abstractNum (§17.9.1)



val (String Value)

Specifies that its contents contain a string.

The contents of this string are interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.

[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML fragment:

  <w:pStyle w:val="heading1" /> 

The value of the val attribute is the ID of the associated paragraph style's styleId.

However, consider the following fragment:

  <w:alias w:val="SDT Title Example" />

In this case, the decimal number in the val attribute is the caption of the parent structured document tag. In each case, the value is interpreted in the context of the parent element. end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_String simple type (§

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