@ploc (optional) Captures staff location in terms of written pitch name. Value conforms to data.PITCHNAME . att.staffloc.pitched
@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
@size (optional) Describes the relative size of a feature. Value conforms to data.SIZE . att.relativesize
@spaces (optional) States how many spaces are covered by the rest. Value of datatype positiveInteger. att.rest.vis.mensural
@staff (optional) Signifies the staff on which a notated event occurs or to which a control event applies. Mandatory when applicable. One or more values of datatype positiveInteger, separated by spaces. att.staffident
@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
@tstamp (optional) Encodes the onset time in terms of musical time, i.e., beats[.fractional_beat_part]. Value conforms to data.BEAT . att.timestamp.musical
