@label (optional) Provides a name or label for an element. The value may be any string. Value of datatype string. att.commonPart
@mimetype (optional) Specifies the applicable MIME (multimedia internet mail extension) type. The value should be a valid MIME media type defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force in RFC 2046. Value of datatype string. att.internetmedia
@n (optional) Provides a number-like designation for an element. Value conforms to token . att.common
@target (optional) Allows the use of one or more previously-undeclared URIs to identify passive participants in a relationship; that is, the entities pointed "to". One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.pointing
@targettype (optional) Characterization of target resource(s) using any convenient classification scheme or typology. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.pointing
@xlink:actuate (optional) Defines whether a link occurs automatically or must be requested by the user. Allowed values are: " onLoad" (Load the target resource(s) immediately.), " onRequest" (Load the target resource(s) upon user request.), " none" (Do not permit loading of the target resource(s).), " other" (Behavior other than allowed by the other values of this attribute.) att.pointing
@xlink:role (optional) Characterization of the relationship between resources. The value of the role attribute must be a URI. Value conforms to data.URI . att.pointing
@xlink:show (optional) Defines how a remote resource is rendered. Allowed values are: " new" (Open in a new window.), " replace" (Load the referenced resource in the same window.), " embed" (Embed the referenced resource at the point of the link.), " none" (Do not permit traversal to the referenced resource.), " other" (Behavior other than permitted by the other values of this attribute.) att.pointing
@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
@xml:space (optional) Allows one to signal to an application whether an element's white space is "significant". The behavior of xml:space cascades to all descendant elements, but it can be turned off locally by setting the xml:space attribute to the value "default". Allowed values are: " default" (Allows the application to handle white space as necessary. Not including an xml:space attribute produces the same result as using the default value.) , " preserve" (Instructs the application to maintain white space "as-is", suggesting that it might have meaning.) att.whitespace
