Attributes
@beam (optional) Indicates that this event is "under a beam". One or more values from data.BEAM , separated by spaces. att.beamed
@compressable (optional) Indicates whether a space is 'compressible', i.e., if it may be removed at the discretion of processing software. Value conforms to data.BOOLEAN . att.space.vis
@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
@dots (optional) Records the number of augmentation dots required by a dotted duration. Value conforms to data.AUGMENTDOT . att.augmentdots
@dur (optional) Records the duration of a feature using the relative durational values provided by the data.DURATION datatype. Value conforms to data.DURATION . att.duration.musical
@dur.ges (optional) Records performed duration information that differs from the written duration. Its value may be expressed in several forms; that is, ppq (MIDI clicks and MusicXML 'divisions'), Humdrum **recip values, beats, seconds, or mensural duration values. Value conforms to data.DURATION.gestural . att.duration.performed
@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
@fermata (optional) Indicates the attachment of a fermata to this element. If visual information about the fermata needs to be recorded, then a <fermata> element should be employed instead. Value conforms to data.PLACE . att.fermatapresent
@label (optional) Provides a name or label for an element. The value may be any string. Value of datatype string. att.commonPart
@layer (optional) Identifies the layer to which a feature applies. One or more values of datatype positiveInteger, separated by spaces. att.layerident
@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
@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
@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
@tstamp.ges (optional) Captures performed onset time in several forms; that is, ppq (MIDI clicks and MusicXML 'divisions'), Humdrum **recip values, beats, seconds, or mensural duration values. Value conforms to data.DURATION.gestural . att.timestamp.performed
@tstamp.real (optional) Used to record the onset time in terms of ISO time. Value conforms to data.ISOTIME . att.timestamp.performed
@tuplet (optional) Indicates that this feature participates in a tuplet. If visual information about the tuplet needs to be recorded, then a <tuplet> element should be employed. One or more values from data.TUPLET , separated by spaces. att.tupletpresent
@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
