2.1.364 Part 4 Section 188.8.131.52, permStart (Range Permission Start)
For additional notes that apply to this portion of the standard, please see the notes for permEnd, §184.108.40.206(a) .
a. The standard says that if colFirst or colLast is greater than the number of columns in table, both attributes should be ignored.
Word does not ignore the attributes and instead behaves unpredictably.
b. The standard does not specify behavior when both the ed and edGrp attributes are present.
In Word, if the ed attribute is present, the edGrp attribute will be ignored.
c. The standard allows range permissions inside math objects and spanning parts of math objects.
If a range permission is inside a math object or includes only part of a math object, then Word exhibits unpredictable behavior and may move or duplicate the range permission.
This note applies to the following products: 2007, 2007 SP1, 2007 SP2.
