<isLgl> (Display All Levels Using Arabic Numerals)

This element specifies whether or not all previous levels displayed for a given numbering level's text shall be displayed using the decimal number format, regardless of the actual number format of that level in the list.
Note: : This numbering style is often referred to as the legal numbering style.

If this element is present, then all numbering levels present in the <lvlTxt> element (§2.9.12) shall be converted to their decimal equivalents when they are displayed in this level in the numbering format. If this element is omitted, then each level is displayed using the <numFmt>2.9.18) of that level.


As shown above, each number in the third level in the list has been converted to its decimal equivalent. The WordprocessingML necessary to turn on the legal numbering rule for the third numbering level is given below:

<w:lvl w:ilvl="2">
  <w:isLgl />

<val> (On/Off Value)

Specifies a binary value for the property defined by the parent XML element.

A value of on, 1, or true specifies that the property shall be explicitly applied. This is the default value for this attribute, and is implied when the parent element is present, but this attribute is omitted.

A value of off, 0, or false specifies that the property shall be explicitly turned off.

<w:… w:val="off"/>

The @val attribute explicitly declares that the property is turned off. ]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_OnOff simple type (§2.18.67).

The following XML Schema fragment defines the contents of this element:
