underlineTabInNumList (Underline Following Character Following Numbering)

This element specifies whether applications shall underline the character following the numbering defined using the suff element (Part 1, §17.9.29) when both the numbering itself and the first letter of the corresponding numbered paragraph is underlined.

Typically, the tab or space character generated between numbering and the corresponding paragraph of text is never formatted, since it is automatically generated by the suff element. This element, when present with a val attribute value of true (or equivalent), specifies that the tab or space shall tab or space shall be underlined the same way as the numbering symbol itself in the following conditions:

  • The numbering is underlined

  • The first character of the paragraph is underlined

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with two numbered paragraphs: one with underlined text and the other without. The default presentation would have the tab characters free of underlining in both cases:

However, if this compatibility setting is turned on:

<w:compat>
  <w:underlineTabInNumList />
</w:compat>

Then the second paragraph meets the criteria defined above for having the suffix character underlined, resulting in the following output:

end example]
