FieldSeparator is an inline-level node and represented by the FieldSeparatorChar control character in the document.

FieldSeparator can only be a child of Paragraph.

A complete field in a Microsoft Word document is a complex structure consisting of a field start character, field code, field separator character, field result and field end character. Some fields only have field start, field code and field end.

To easily insert a new field into a document, use the InsertField() method.
