<hpsBaseText> (Phonetic Guide Base Text Font Size)

This element specifies the font size which shall be applied to the base text of this phonetic guide text when displayed. If this element disagrees with the run properties on the phonetic guide base text <rubyBase> element (§, then this property shall be ignored and the <sz> element (§ in that run shall determine the size of the phonetic guide base text.

<w:rubyPr><w:hpsBaseText w:val="60"/></w:rubyPr>

The <hpsBaseText> property is 60 half-points for the base text in this phonetic guide, so the phonetic guide base text will be displayed in 30 point font size. ]

Parent Elements




<val> (Half Point Measurement)

Specifies a positive measurement specified in half-points (1/144 of an inch).

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

  <w:sz w:val="28" /> 

The value of the @val attribute is the font size of the run's contents.

However, consider the following fragment:

  <w:kern w:val="30" />

In this case, the value in the @val attribute is the minimum size for which font characters shall be automatically kerned.

In each case, the value is interpreted in the context of the parent element. ]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_HpsMeasure simple type (§2.18.48).
