2.1.87 Part 1 Section 17.3.2.26, rFonts (Run Fonts)

a. The standard does not limit the length of the ascii, hAnsi, cs, and eastAsia attributes.

Word restricts the value of these attributes to be less than 32 characters.

b. The standard states that the use of each of the run fonts shall be determined by the Unicode character values of the run content, but does not explain precisely how this is done.

Word determines the use of each of these fonts from the Unicode character values in the following manner:

If the run has the cs element ("[ISO/IEC-29500-1] §17.3.2.7; cs") or the rtl element ("[ISO/IEC-29500-1] §17.3.2.30; rtl"), then the cs (or cstheme if defined) font is used, regardless of the Unicode character values of the run’s content.

If the eastAsia (or eastAsiaTheme if defined) attribute’s value is “Times New Roman” and the ascii (or asciiTheme if defined) and hAnsi (or hAnsiTheme if defined) attributes are equal, then the ascii (or asciiTheme if defined) font is used.

Otherwise, the following table is used. For all ranges not listed in the following table, the hAnsi (or hAnsiTheme if defined) font shall be used.
