2.1.470 Part 4 Section 2.15.3.26, footnoteLayoutLikeWW8 (Emulate Word 6.x/95/97 Footnote Placement)

a.   The standard does not state exactly how to emulate Word 6.x/95/97 footnote placement.

In Office, this element specifies that Word should override the default behavior for a continuous section break when one or more footnotes are present on the page with the footnote. This override typically results in text being displayed on the same page as a continuous section break (after the break, which would normally move all following text to the next page).

Typically, applications render a continuous section break as a page break when one or more footnoteRef elements (“[ECMA-376] Part 4 §2.11.13; footnoteRef (Footnote Reference Mark)”) occur on that page before the break. This element, when present with a val attribute value of true (or equivalent), specifies that Word should allow any paragraph after the section break that contains no footnoteRef elements (“[ECMA-376] Part 4 §2.11.13; footnoteRef (Footnote Reference Mark)”) to be displayed on the same page. If the resulting content reaches the page extents, the section’s page break is ignored.

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with two footnotes contained in two sections, separated by a continuous section break:

 <w:p>
   <w:r>
     <w:t xml:space="preserve">Here is the first paragraph in the first section.</w:t>
   </w:r>
 </w:p>
 <w:p>
   <w:r>
     <w:t>Here is the second paragraph in the first section.</w:t>
   </w:r>
   <w:r>
     <w:rPr>
       <w:rStyle w:val="FootnoteReference" />
     </w:rPr>
 <w:footnoteReference w:id="2" />
     </w:r>
 </w:p>
 <w:p/>
 <w:p>
   <w:pPr>
     <w:sectPr>
       ...
     </w:sectPr>
   </w:pPr>
   </w:p>
 <w:p>
   <w:r>
     <w:t>Here is the first paragraph in the second section.</w:t>
   </w:r>
 </w:p>
 <w:p>
   <w:r>
     <w:t xml:space="preserve">Here is the second paragraph in the second section.</w:t>
   </w:r>
   <w:r>
     <w:rPr>
       <w:rStyle w:val="FootnoteReference" />
       </w:rPr>
 <w:footnoteReference w:id="3" />
   </w:r>
 </w:p>
 <w:p>
   <w:r>
     <w:t xml:space="preserve">Here is the third paragraph in the second section. </w:t>
     </w:r>
 </w:p>
 <w:sectPr>
   <w:type w:val="continuous" />
     ...
 </w:sectPr>

The default rendering of such a document results in the continuous section break as a page break, resulting in the following two page document:

Equation

However, if this compatibility setting is turned on:

 <w:compat>
   <w:footnoteLayoutLikeWW8 />
 </w:compat>

Then the first paragraph following the section break (not having any footnote references) is displayed on the same page, despite the section break, resulting in the following output:
