a. The standard does not specify how field argument 1 defines the drawing rectangle.

In Word, text in this switch's field-argument-1 defines the drawing rectangle on which the subsequent PostScript instructions operate. It can be any of the keywords from the following table.

Keyword

Description

cell

Sets the bounding box to equal the size of a one-line cell with the width of the current cell. The bounding box’s upper-left corner will be placed by default at the upper-left corner of the current page. The bounding box will be offset to the right by the location of the current column, and offset down by the amount of prior text in the current cell.

In Word, the bounding box will be offset to the right by the location of the current column minus the width of the left border, and offset down by the amount of prior text in the current cell minus the width of the top border.

page

Sets the bounding box to be equal to the current page.

para

Sets the bounding box to be equal to the current paragraph.

pic

Sets the bounding box to be equal to the next picture in the current paragraph.

Word will only recognize a picture described using VML when using this option.

row

Sets the bounding box to equal the size of a one-line row in the current table. The bounding box’s upper-left corner will be placed by default at the upper-left corner of the current page. The bounding box will be offset to the right by the location of the current row, and offset down by the amount of prior text in the current cell.

In Word, the bounding box will not be offset to the right, and offset down by the amount of prior text in the current cell minus the width of the top border.

b. The standard says that /p is an optional switch for the PRINT field.

In Word, the /p switch is required for the PRINT field.
