drawingGridHorizontalSpacing (Drawing Grid Horizontal Grid Unit Size)
This element specifies the width of horizontal grid units in this document. The drawing grid is a grid which can be used by applications to help position floating objects in the document.
If this element is omitted, then each horizontal grid unit shall be 180 twentieths of a point (0.125") in width.
[Example: Consider the image below illustrating a WordprocessingML document in which all horizontal grid units are each 144 twentieths of a point wide (and all are showing):
If the gridlines in this document must only be displayed for every half an inch, that requirement would be specified using the following WordprocessingML in the document settings:
<w:drawingGridHorizontalSpacing w:val="720" />
The resulting grid would look like the following:
The drawingGridHorizontalSpacing element has its val attribute equal to 720, therefore every horizontal gridline has a width of one half of an inch (720 twentieths of a point). end example]
val (Measurement in Twentieths of a Point)
Specifies a positive measurement value, specified in twentieths of a point. This value is interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.
[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML element with a val attribute containing a positive measurement in twentieths of a point:
<… w:val="720" />
The val attribute has a value of 720, specifying that this measurement value is 720 twentieths of a point (0.5"). This value is interpreted by the parent element as needed. end example]
The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_TwipsMeasure simple type (§188.8.131.52).
[Note: The W3C XML Schema definition of this element’s content model (CT_TwipsMeasure) is located in §A.1. end note]
