If the parent structured document tag is not of type rich text (as specified in [ISO/IEC-29500-1] section then this behaves like a dataBinding (as specified in [ISO/IEC-29500-1] section element, otherwise the data stored in the XML element will be an escaped string comprised of a flattened WordprocessingML document representing the formatted data in the structured document tag range.

See section 2.2.3 for how this element integrates with ISO/IEC-29500-1.
