rsids (Listing of All Revision Save ID Values)

This element specifies the set of revision save ID values for the current document. Revision save ID values refer to four digit hexadecimal values which uniquely identify an editing session in the life of the current document. An editing session is the period of time between two subsequent save operations by an application.

[Guidance: The set of revision save IDs stored with a document only supplies information about the editing session in which document components were last saved, which can be used by applications in any manner desired. end guidance]

If this element is omitted, then no information is available about the set of revision save ID values for this document.

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with the following information present in its document settings:

  <w:rsidRoot w:val="00464813" />
  <w:rsid w:val="00455AAB" />
  <w:rsid w:val="00464813" />
  <w:rsid w:val="00473403" />

The rsids element contains four child elements, specifying that the document was edited over four distinct editing sessions (i.e. it was saved three times). end example]
