cmAuthorLst (List of Comment Authors)

This element specifies a list of authors with comments in the current document. Each comment in a document shall refer to an author in this list. To determine if a new author is in this list, the author's name and initials shall both match; otherwise, the new author is considered unique and a separate cmAuthor element is added.

[Example: A document contains comments left by two authors.

    <p:cmAuthor id="0" name="Julie Lee" initials="JL" lastIdx="1" clrIdx="0"/>
    <p:cmAuthor id="1" name="Fred Jones" initials="FJ" lastIdx="2" clrIdx="1"/>

end example]
