@evaluate (optional) Specifies the intended meaning when a participant in a relationship is itself a pointer. Allowed values are: " all" (If an element pointed to is itself a pointer, then the target of that pointer will be taken, and so on, until an element is found which is not a pointer.) , " one" (If an element pointed to is itself a pointer, then its target (whether a pointer or not) is taken as the target of this pointer.) , " none" (No further evaluation of targets is carried out beyond that needed to find the element(s) specified in plist or target attribute.) att.targeteval
@label (optional) Provides a name or label for an element. The value may be any string. Value of datatype string. att.commonPart
@n (optional) Provides a number-like designation for an element. Value conforms to token . att.common
@plist (optional) Contains a space separated list of references that identify active participants in a collection/relationship, such as notes under a phrase mark; that is, the entities pointed "from". One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.plist
@source (optional) Contains a list of one or more pointers indicating the sources which attest to a given reading. Each value should correspond to the ID of a <source> element located in the document header. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.source
@subtype (optional) Provide any sub-classification for the element, additional to that given by its type attribute. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.typed
@type (optional) Characterizes the element in some sense, using any convenient classification scheme or typology. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.typed
@xml:base (optional) Provides a base URI reference with which applications can resolve relative URI references into absolute URI references. Value conforms to data.URI . att.commonPart

May contain
<memberOf key= " att.common" />
<memberOf key= " att.plist" />
<memberOf key= " att.source" />
<memberOf key= " att.targeteval" />
<memberOf key= " att.typed" />

The plist attribute contains an ordered list of identifiers of descendant section, ending, lem, or rdg elements. For example, the sequence "#A #End1 #A #End2" indicates that the section labelled 'A' comes first, then the ending labelled 'End1', followed by the 'A' section again, and finally the ending labelled 'End2'.
