att.visualOffset

Visual offset attributes. Some items may have their location recorded in terms of offsets from their programmatically-determined location. The ho attribute records the horizontal offset while vo records the vertical. The to attribute holds a timestamp offset, the most common use of which is as an alternative to the ho attribute.

Attributes
ho, to, vo
ho(optional)Records a horizontal adjustment to a feature’s programmatically-determined location in terms of staff interline distance; that is, in units of 1/2 the distance between adjacent staff lines. Value conforms to data.MEASUREMENTSIGNED.
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.
vo(optional)Records the vertical adjustment of a feature’s programmatically-determined location in terms of staff interline distance; that is, in units of 1/2 the distance between adjacent staff lines. Value conforms to data.MEASUREMENTSIGNED.
(MEI.shared) Horizontal offset attributes.
ho(optional)Records a horizontal adjustment to a feature’s programmatically-determined location in terms of staff interline distance; that is, in units of 1/2 the distance between adjacent staff lines. Value conforms to data.MEASUREMENTSIGNED.
(MEI.shared) Horizontal offset attributes specified in terms of time.
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.
(MEI.shared) Vertical offset attributes.
vo(optional)Records the vertical adjustment of a feature’s programmatically-determined location in terms of staff interline distance; that is, in units of 1/2 the distance between adjacent staff lines. Value conforms to data.MEASUREMENTSIGNED.

graphicIndicates the location of an inline graphic.
anchoredTextContainer for text that is fixed to a particular page location, regardless of changes made to the layout of the measures around it.
arpegIndicates that the notes of a chord are to be performed successively rather than simultaneously, usually from lowest to highest. Sometimes called a "roll".
articAn indication of how to play a note or chord.
attaccaAn instruction to begin the next section or movement of a composition without pause.
bendA variation in pitch (often micro-tonal) upwards or downwards during the course of a note.
bracketSpanMarks a sequence of notational events grouped by a bracket.
breathAn indication of a point at which the performer on an instrument requiring breath (including the voice) may breathe.
caesuraBreak, pause, or interruption in the normal tempo of a composition. Typically indicated by "railroad tracks", i.e., two diagonal slashes.
clefIndication of the exact location of a particular note on the staff and, therefore, the other notes as well.
cpMarkA verbal or graphical indication to copy musical material written elsewhere.
curveA curved line that cannot be represented by a more specific element, such as a slur.
dirAn instruction expressed as a combination of text and symbols — such as segno and coda symbols, fermatas over a bar line, etc., typically above, below, or between staves, but not on the staff — that is not encoded elsewhere in more specific elements, like tempo or dynam.
dynamIndication of the volume of a note, phrase, or section of music.
fSingle element of a figured bass indication.
fermataAn indication placed over a note or rest to indicate that it should be held longer than its written value. May also occur over a bar line to indicate the end of a phrase or section. Sometimes called a 'hold' or 'pause'.
fingfinger – An individual finger in a fingering indication.
fingGrp(finger group)– A group of individual fingers in a fingering indication.
glissA continuous or sliding movement from one pitch to another, usually indicated by a straight or wavy line.

halfmRptA half-measure repeat in any meter.
harmAn indication of harmony, e.g., chord names, tablature grids, harmonic analysis, figured bass.
harpPedalHarp pedal diagram.
lineA visual line that cannot be represented by a more specific; i.e., semantic, element.
lvA "tie-like" indication that a note should ring beyond its written duration.
mNumDesignation, name, or label for a measure, often but not always consisting of digits. Use this element when the n attribute on measure does not adequately capture the appearance or placement of the measure number/label.
mordentAn ornament indicating rapid alternation of the main note with a secondary note, usually a step below, but sometimes a step above.

ornamAn element indicating an ornament that is not a mordent, turn, or trill.
pedalPiano pedal mark.

rehIn an orchestral score and its corresponding parts, a mark indicating a convenient point from which to resume rehearsal after a break.
restA non-sounding event found in the source being transcribed.
slurIndication of 1) a "unified melodic idea" or 2) performance technique.
spContains an individual speech in a performance text.
stageDirContains any kind of stage direction within a dramatic text or fragment.
sylIndividual lyric syllable.
symbolA reference to a previously defined symbol.
tempoText and symbols descriptive of tempo, mood, or style, e.g., "allarg.", "a tempo", "cantabile", "Moderato", "♩=60", "Moderato ♩ =60").
tieAn indication that two notes of the same pitch form a single note with their combined rhythmic values.
trillRapid alternation of a note with another (usually at the interval of a second above).
turnAn ornament consisting of four notes — the upper neighbor of the written note, the written note, the lower neighbor, and the written note.
