Chapter 2. The WordprocessingML Vocabula... > Auxiliary Hints in WordprocessingML

2.6. Auxiliary Hints in WordprocessingML

Until now, we've managed to stick to a pretty strict diet of elements and attributes from the WordprocessingML namespace, which has had times more pleasant than others. Now it's time to introduce a set of elements and attributes from another namespace that are designed purely for the purpose of making your life easier. That's right, you guessed it: the wx prefix is your friend (so long as it's mapped to the right namespace: http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/word/2003/auxHint).

There are quite a few contexts in which elements and attributes from the wx namespace appear in WordprocessingML documents saved by Word. We'll be focusing on some of the most significant of these: sections, sub-sections, and list text, as well as formatting hints. These hints save consumers of WordprocessingML documents much grief and processing power that would otherwise be spent on things like traversing the links of a list definition, for example.
