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.
Module

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.MEASUREMENTREL.
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.MEASUREMENTREL.
(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.MEASUREMENTREL.
(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.MEASUREMENTREL.

Available at
graphicIndicates the location of an inline graphic.
mNum(measure number) – Designation, 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.
anchoredTextContainer for text that is fixed to a particular page location, regardless of changes made to the layout of the measures around it.
arpeg(arpeggiation) – Indicates that the notes of a chord are to be performed successively rather than simultaneously, usually from lowest to highest. Sometimes called a "roll".
artic(articulation) – An 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.
breath(breath mark) – An 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.
cpMark(copy/colla parte mark) – A verbal or graphical indication to copy musical material written elsewhere.

dir(directive) – An 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.
dynam(dynamic) – Indication of the volume of a note, phrase, or section of music.
f(figure) – Single 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'.

fingGrp(finger group)– A group of individual fingers in a fingering indication.
gliss(glissando) – A continuous or sliding movement from one pitch to another, usually indicated by a straight or wavy line.

harm(harmony) – An indication of harmony, e.g., chord names, tablature grids, harmonic analysis, figured bass.
harpPedal(harp pedal) – Harp pedal diagram.
lineA visual line that cannot be represented by a more specific; i.e., semantic, element.
lv(laissez vibrer) – A "tie-like" indication that a note should ring beyond its written duration.
mordentAn ornament indicating rapid alternation of the main note with a secondary note, usually a step below, but sometimes a step above.
mRest(measure rest) – Complete measure rest in any meter.
octaveAn indication that a passage should be performed one or more octaves above or below its written pitch.
ornamAn element indicating an ornament that is not a mordent, turn, or trill.
pedalPiano pedal mark.
phraseIndication of 1) a "unified melodic idea" or 2) performance technique.
reh(rehearsal mark) – In 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.
sp(speech) – Contains an individual speech in a performance text.
stageDir(stage direction) – Contains any kind of stage direction within a dramatic text or fragment.
syl(syllable) – Individual 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.
