<numId> (Numbering Definition Instance Reference)

This element specifies the numbering definition instance which shall be used for the given parent numbered paragraph in the WordprocessingML document.

A value of 0 for the @val attribute shall never be used to point to a numbering definition instance, and shall instead only be used to designate the removal of numbering properties at a particular level in the style hierarchy (typically via direct formatting).

      <w:ilvl w:val="0" />
      <w:numId w:val="5" />

This paragraph references a numbering definition instance with a @numId attribute of 5, as follows:

<w:num w:numId="5">
  <w:abstractNumId w:val="4" />

The numbering definition instance reference specifies the given numbering definition instance to be applied to the given paragraph, which itself inherits its properties from abstract numbering definition with @abstractNumId of 4. ]
