Attributes
@copyof (optional) Points to an element of which the current element is a copy. Value conforms to data.URI . att.common.anl
@corresp (optional) Used to point to other elements that correspond to this one in a generic fashion. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.common.anl
@decls (optional) Identifies one or more metadata elements within the header, which are understood to apply to the element bearing this attribute and its content. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.declaring
@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
@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
@sameas (optional) Points to an element that is the same as the current element but is not a literal copy of the current element. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.common.anl
@subtype (optional) Provide any sub-classification for the element, additional to that given by its type attribute. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.typed
@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
@type (optional) Characterizes the element in some sense, using any convenient classification scheme or typology. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.typed
@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
@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

Remarks

part elements are not used in MEI to indicate voice leading. next attributes on event elements should be used for this purpose. part elements are useful for encoding individual parts when there is no score, such as early music part books, when the music has non-aligning bar lines, when different layout, such as page turns, are needed for the score and parts, or for accommodating software that requires part-by-part encoding. When assembly of the parts into a score is desired and there are non-aligning bar lines, bar lines which indicate points of alignment across all the parts may be marked as 'controlling', while non-aligning ones may be marked as 'non-controlling'.
