@targettype (optional) Characterization of target resource(s) using any convenient classification scheme or typology. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.pointing
@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
@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

Remarks

The n attribute should be used to record the page number displayed in the source. It need not be an integer, e.g., 'iv', or 'p17-3'. The logical page number can be calculated by counting previous pb ancestor elements. When used in a score context, a page break implies an accompanying system break.This element is modelled on an element in the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) standard.
