2.1.481 Part 4 Section 2.15.3.66, wpSpaceWidth (Space width)

a.   The standard does not specify exactly how to determine the width of the space character for all proportional fonts used in this document.

(The terms ascent and descent are used as defined in ISO/IEC 14496-22:2007.)

In Office, this element specifies that Word should determine the width of the space character for all proportional fonts used in this document by using the following calculation.

Typically, applications calculate the width of a whitespace character dynamically to optimize for the output device. This element, when present with a val attribute value of true (or equivalent), specifies that Word should instead use the following algorithm to determine the width of a whitespace character:

Equation

where

Equation is the width of a space character

Equation is the ascent for the font

Equation is the descent for the font

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with this compatibility setting turned on:

 <w:compat>
   <w:wpSpaceWidth />
 </w:compat>

If the font applied to a run specified an ascent value of 8 points and a descent value of 2 points, each space in that run would have a width of three and one-third points. end example]

This note applies to the following products: 2007, 2007 SP1, 2007 SP2.
