si (String Item)

This element is the representation of an individual string in the Shared String table.

If the string is just a simple string with formatting applied at the cell level, then the String Item (si) should contain a single text element used to express the string. However, if the string in the cell is more complex - i.e., has formatting applied at the character level - then the string item shall consist of multiple rich text runs which collectively are used to express the string.
