ST_String (String Type)

This simple type specifies that its contents will 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 of type ST_String, and therefore must be interpreted in the context of the parent element. end example]

This simple type's contents are a restriction of the XML Schema string datatype.
