<numFmt> (Numbering Format)

This element specifies the number format which shall be used to display all numbering at this level in the numbering definition. This information is used to replace the level text string %x, where x is a particular one-based level index, with the appropriate value. This value shall be calculated by counting the number of paragraphs at this level since the last restart using the numbering system defined in the @val attribute.

If omitted, the level shall be assumed to be of type decimal.

<w:lvl w:ilvl="2">
  <w:start w:val="1" />
  <w:numFmt w:val="lowerRoman" />
  <w:lvlRestart w:val="0">
  <w:lvlText w:val="%3)" />
  <w:lvlJc w:val="left" />
    <w:ind w:left="1080" w:hanging="360" />
    <w:rFonts w:hint="default" />

A @numFmt value of lowerLetter indicates that a consumer shall use lowercase letters for all numbering of this level: a,b,c… ]
