sz (Non-Complex Script Font Size)

This element specifies the font size which shall be applied to all non complex script characters in the contents of this run when displayed. The font sizes specified by this element’s val attribute are expressed as half-point values.

If this element is not present, the default is to leave the font size at the value applied at the previous level in the style hierarchy. If this element is never applied in the style hierarchy, then any appropriate font size can be used for non complex script characters.

[Example: Consider a run of text which must have an explicit font size of 13.5 points for the non complex script contents of the run. This constraint is specified using the following WordprocessingML:

  <w:sz w:val="27"/>

This run explicitly declares that the sz property is 27 half-point for the non-complex script contents of this run, so the text is displayed in 13.5 point font size. end example]

val (Half Point Measurement)

Specifies a positive measurement specified in half-points (1/144 of an inch).

The contents of this attribute value are interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.

[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML fragment:

<… w:val="30" />

The value in the val attribute is 30, which is equivalent to 15 points (30 half-points).

This value is interpreted in the context of the parent element. end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_HpsMeasure simple type (§17.18.42).

[Note: The W3C XML Schema definition of this element’s content model (CT_HpsMeasure) is located in §A.1. end note]
