<name> (Abstract Numbering Definition Name)

This element specifies the name of a given abstract numbering definition. This name may 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.

<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" /></w:abstractNum>

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

Parent Elements




<val> (String Value)

Specifies that its contents will contain a string.

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

  <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. ]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_String simple type (§2.18.89).

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

<complexType name="CT_String">
	<attribute name="val" type="ST_String" use="required"/>
