@label (optional) Provides a name or label for an element. The value may be any string. Value of datatype string. att.commonPart
@level (optional) Indicates the nesting level of staff grouping symbols. Value of datatype positiveInteger. att.grpSym.log
@n (optional) Provides a number-like designation for an element. Value conforms to token . att.common
@next (optional) Used to point to the next event(s) in a user-defined collection. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.common.anl
@prev (optional) Points to the previous event(s) in a user-defined collection. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.common.anl

@symbol (optional) Specifies the symbol used to group a set of staves. Allowed values are: " brace" (Curved symbol, i.e., {.), " bracket" (Square symbol, i.e., [, but with curved/angled top and bottom segments.), " bracketsq" (Square symbol, i.e., [, with horizontal top and bottom segments.), " line" (Line symbol, i.e., |, (wide) line without top and bottom curved/horizontal segments.) , " none" (Grouping symbol missing.) att.staffgroupingsym
@synch (optional) Points to elements that are synchronous with the current element. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.common.anl
@to (optional) Records a timestamp adjustment of a feature's programmatically-determined location in terms of musical time; that is, beats. Value conforms to data.TSTAMPOFFSET . att.visualoffset.to
@vo (optional) Records the vertical adjustment of a feature's programmatically-determined location in terms of staff interline distance; that is, in units of 1/2 the distance between adjacent staff lines. Value conforms to data.MEASUREMENTREL . att.visualoffset.vo
@when (optional) Indicates the point of occurrence of this feature along a time line. Its value must be the ID of a when element elsewhere in the document. Value conforms to data.URI . att.alignment
@x (optional) Encodes an x coordinate for a feature in an output coordinate system. When it is necessary to record the placement of a feature in a facsimile image, use the facs attribute. Value of datatype decimal. att.xy
@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
@xml:id (optional) Regularizes the naming of an element and thus facilitates building links between it and other resources. Each id attribute within a document must have a unique value. Value of datatype ID. att.id
@y (optional) Encodes an y coordinate for a feature in an output coordinate system. When it is necessary to record the placement of a feature in a facsimile image, use the facs attribute. Value of datatype decimal. att.xy

Remarks

This element provides an alternative to the staffGrp element's symbol attribute. It may be used when exact placement or editorial details for the grouping symbol must be recorded.

Constraints
In scoreDef, grpSym must have startid, endid, and level attributes.
<sch:rule context= "mei:grpSym[parent::mei:scoreDef]">
<sch:assert test= "@startid and @endid and @level"> In scoreDef, grpSym must have startid, endid, and level attributes. </sch:assert>
</sch:rule>
Constraints
In staffGrp, grpSym must not have startid, endid, or level attributes.
<sch:rule context= "mei:grpSym[parent::mei:staffGrp]">
<sch:assert test= "not(@startid or @endid or @level)"> In staffGrp, grpSym must not have startid, endid, or level attributes. </sch:assert>
