2.1.1796 Part 4 Section 19.1.2.23, textpath (Text Layout Path)

For additional notes that apply to this portion of the standard, please see the notes for pict, §14.2.2.2(a); pict, §14.5.1(a); background, §17.2.1(a); arc, §19.1.2.1(gggg); background, §19.1.2.2(c); group, §19.1.2.7(a).

a.   The standard indicates that the default value for the v-text-align property of the style attribute is left.

Office uses a default value of center for the v-text-align property of the style attribute.

b.   The standard implies that all properties on the style attribute apply to the textpath element.

Office only supports the following properties on the textbox element:  font, font-family, font-size, font-style, font-variant, font-weight, mso-text-shadow, text-direction, v-rotate-letters, v-same-letter-heights, v-text-align, v-text-kern, v-text-reverse, v-text-spacing-mode, and v-text-spacing.

c.   The standard indicates that the default value for the mso-text-shadow property of the style attribute is false.

Office uses a default value of none for the mso-text-shadow property of the style attribute.

d.   The standard implies that changing the value of the font-size property of the style attribute changes the size of the textpath.

Office uses the width and height properties of the parent shape’s style attribute to determine the area into which the text path is rendered.  If the value of font-size is increased, then the width and height on the parent shape are also required to be increased to accommodate the larger font-size value.

e.   The standard indicates how the text-decoration property of the style attribute is used.

Office does not support the text-decoration property, but does preserve its value on file save.

f.   The standard indicates how the font-variant property of the style attribute is used.

Office does not support the font-variant property, but does preserve its value on file save.

g.   The standard indicates that the default value for the v-text-spacing property of the style attribute is 100.

Office uses a default value of 1 or the v-text-spacing property of the style attribute.

h.   The standard indicates that the default value for the v-text-spacing-mode property of the style attribute is tightening.

Office uses a default value of tracking for the v-text-spacing-mode property of the style attribute.

i.   The standard does not restrict the number of instances of the textpath element.

Office allows at most only one instance of the textpath element in each place where it can be used.

j.   The standard implies the valid values for the mso-text-shadow property of the style attribute.

Office supports the values auto and none for the mso-text-shadow property of the style attribute.

k.   The standard does not specify bounds for the v-text-spacing property of the style attribute.

Office supports a minimum value of 0 and a maximum value of 5.  A value larger than 1.0 means expanded spacing while a value less than 1.0 means condensed spacing.

l.   The standard implies that the v-text-spacing property of the style attribute is specified using unitless numbers.

Office also supports specifying this property as a percentage in the range 0% through 500%.  This numeric value may also be specified in 1/65536-ths if a trailing "f" is supplied.  For example, a value of "52429f" represents 52429/65536 or 0.8.  Using this notation, the range of acceptable values is from 0f through 327680f.
