  • id, a mandatory attribute which allows referencing to the staff.
  • line_number, an attribute which contains the number of lines; "5" is the default value .
  • ossia, an attribute to encode ossia staff. An ossia staff is used as an alternative notation for a part/voice represented in a standard staff. For instance, it is used to realize complex ornaments or to notate standard cadenzas.
  • tablature, an attribute which states the kind of tablature, if any.
