noPunctuationKerning (Never Kern Punctuation Characters)
This element specifies that punctuation characters shall not be kerned in the current document when kerning is enabled on a run using the kern element (§22.214.171.124). Kerning refers to a process by which a hosting application shall reduce the spacing of adjacent characters and/or punctuation to improve the visual appearance of text. Well kerned text has a similar amount of blank space between each pair of characters and/or each set of a character and punctuation symbol. When kerning is enabled, Latin text shall always be kerned, and this option shall control whether punctuation characters are also kerned.
If this element is omitted, then punctuation characters shall be kerned when kerning is enabled on a given run.
[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document that must not kern punctuation even when kerning is enabled on a given run. This requirement is specified using the following WordprocessingML in the document settings:
<w:noPunctuationKerning w:val="true" />
The noPunctuationKerning element's val attribute has a value of true, specifying that punctuation characters must not be kerned in this document. end example]
This element’s content model is defined by the common boolean property definition in §17.17.4.
