public class EndnoteProperties : OpenXmlCompositeElement

[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition]

endnotePr (Section-Wide Endnote Properties)

This element specifies the endnote properties for the current section. Each of these properties are an override of the document-wide endnote properties (§17.11.4) and are stored as a child element within the endnotePr element.

If this element is omitted for a given section, then that section shall use the endnote properties defined at the document-wide level.

[Example: Consider a document consisting of three sections, which has endnotes in the first section which use lowercase roman numerals, and endnotes in the third section which use the Chicago Manual of Style format. The WordprocessingML for each section would be specified as follows:

    <w:numFmt w:val="lowerRoman" />

This assumes that the document-wide endnote settings are specified to use the Chicago Manual of Style format, as follows:

    <w:numFmt w:val="chicago" />

The resulting document would override the endnote numbering format for the first section to lowerRoman, but would use the chicago endnote numbering format for section three (and would also use it for section two if that section had endnotes. end example]
