[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition]

overflowPunct (Allow Punctuation to Extend Past Text Extents)

This element specifies that the text in this paragraph shall be allowed to extend one character beyond the extents applied by any indents/margins when the character that extends past those extents is a punctuation character.

Omitting this element sets its value to true.

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with the following string at the end of a line:

"This is some text in quotation marks"

Typically, if the text extents would normally fall between the letter s and the closing quotation mark, the quotation mark would be allowed to extend past the end of the line by one character even though the punctuation is not part of the word marks (since the omission of overflowPunct is equivalent to setting its val attribute to true).

However, if this behavior should not be applied to this paragraph, a producer can specify this by setting the property in the WordprocessingML:

  <w:overflowPunct w:val="0" />

The line would now break after the letter s, regardless of the fact that the next character is a quotation mark. end example]
