<nsid> (Abstract Numbering Definition Identifier)

This element associates a unique hexadecimal ID to the parent abstract numbering definition. This number shall be identical for two abstract numbering definitions that are based from the same initial numbering definition - if a document is repurposed and the underlying numbering definition is changed, it shall maintain its original <nsid>.

If this element is omitted, then the list shall have no <nsid> and one may be added by a producer arbitrarily.

<w:abstractNum w:abstractNumId="3">
  <w:nsid w:val="FFFFFF89" /> 
  <w:multiLevelType w:val="singleLevel" /> 
  <w:tmpl w:val="D9842532" /></w:abstractNum>

In this example, the given abstract numbering definition is associated with the unique hexadecimal ID FFFFFF89. ]
