[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition]

tag (Programmatic Tag)

This element specifies a programmatic tag associated with the current structured document tag. A programmatic tag is an arbitrary string which applications can associate with a structured document tag in order to identify it without providing a visible friendly name. The string representing the programmatic tag shall be stored on this element's val attribute.

If this element is omitted, then no programmatic tag shall be associated with the given structured document tag.

[Example: Consider the following properties on a structured document tag:

  <w:tag w:val="Clause_3246"/>

This set of properties specifies via the tag element that the programmatic tag for the parent structured document tag must be Clause_3246. This information can then be used as needed by applications. end example]

Parent Elements

sdtPr (§



val (String Value)

Specifies that its contents contain a string.

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

[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML fragment:

  <w:pStyle w:val="heading1" /> 

The value of the val attribute is the ID of the associated paragraph style's styleId.

However, consider the following fragment:

  <w:alias w:val="SDT Title Example" />

In this case, the decimal number in the val attribute is the caption of the parent structured document tag. In each case, the value is interpreted in the context of the parent element. end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_String simple type (§

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