att.tie.vis

Visual domain attributes. The vo attribute is the vertical offset (from its normal position) of the entire rendered tie. The startho, startvo, endho, and endvo attributes describe the horizontal and vertical offsets of the start and end points of the tie in terms of staff interline distance; that is, in units of 1/2 the distance between adjacent staff lines. Startto and endto describe the start and end points in terms of time; that is, beats.

bezier(optional)Records the placement of Bezier control points as a series of pairs of space-separated values; e.g., 19 45 -32 118. One or more values, each consisting of a sequence of decimal and decimal sub-values.
bulge(optional)Describes a curve as one or more pairs of values with respect to an imaginary line connecting the starting and ending points of the curve.
