WordprocessingML Reference Material - Table of Contents

name (Category Associated With Entry)

This element specifies the category into which the current glossary document part shall be classified. This classification may consist of any string value as determined by its contents, and shall only be used to classify and sort this entry (via an application or a user interface).

[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML fragment for the properties of a single glossary document entry:

<w:gallery w:val="coverPg" />
<w:name w:val="Internal Memo Covers" />


The name element with a value of Internal Memo Covers specifies that the category grouping applied to the current entry, for the purposes of classification or user interface sorting, puts this entry into the Internal Memo Covers classification. This category may be used as desired. end example]

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.


[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML fragment:



<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. end example]


The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_String simple type2.18.89).

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

<complexType name="CT_String">

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