Module MEI.critapp
Attributes
@cause (optional) Classifies the cause for the variant reading, according to any appropriate typology of possible origins. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.crit
@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
@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
@hand (optional) Signifies the hand responsible for an action. The value must be the ID of a <hand> element declared in the header. Value conforms to data.URI . att.handident
@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
@resp (optional) Indicates the agent(s) responsible for some aspect of the text's creation, transcription, editing, or encoding. Its value must point to one or more identifiers declared in the document header. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.responsibility
@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
@seq (optional) Used to assign a sequence number related to the order in which the encoded features carrying this attribute are believed to have occurred. Value of datatype positiveInteger. att.sequence
@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
@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
@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
@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
@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

Remarks

Since a reading can be a multi-measure section, the scoreDef element is allowed so that a reading may have its own meta-data without incurring the overhead of child section elements. The app sub-element is permitted in order to allow nested sub-variants.This element is modelled on an element in the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) standard.
