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
@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
@facs (optional) Permits the current element to reference a facsimile surface or image zone which corresponds to it. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.facsimile
@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
@restart (optional) Indicates that staves begin again with this section. Value conforms to data.BOOLEAN . att.section.vis
@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
@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

This element functions as a container for actual music data. Pointing attributes make it possible to connect this element to other internal or external entities, such as media objects or annotations.

Constraints
A section containing an expansion element must have descendant section, ending, or rdg elements.
<sch:rule context= "mei:section[mei:expansion]">
<sch:assert test= "descendant::mei:section|descendant::mei:ending|descendant::mei:rdg"> A section containing an expansion element must have descendant section, ending, or rdg elements. </sch:assert>
