<!--
    The identify DTD module contains the identification
    element and its children, containing metadata about a
    score.
-->

<!-- Elements -->

<!--
    Identification contains basic metadata about the score.
    It includes the information in MuseData headers that
    may apply at a score-wide, movement-wide, or part-wide
    level. The creator, rights, source, and relation elements
    are based on Dublin Core.
-->
<!ELEMENT identification (creator*, rights*, encoding?,
    source?, relation*, miscellaneous?)>

<!--
    The creator element is borrowed from Dublin Core. It is
    used for the creators of the score. The type attribute is
    used to distinguish different creative contributions. Thus,
    there can be multiple creators within an identification.
    Standard type values are composer, lyricist, and arranger.
    Other type values may be used for different types of
    creative roles. The type attribute should usually be used
    even if there is just a single creator element. The MusicXML
    format does not use the creator / contributor distinction
    from Dublin Core.
-->

<!--
    Rights is borrowed from Dublin Core. It contains
    copyright and other intellectual property notices.
    Words, music, and derivatives can have different types,
    so multiple rights tags with different type attributes
    are supported. Standard type values are music, words,
    and arrangement, but other types may be used. The
    type attribute is only needed when there are multiple
    rights elements.

<!--
    Encoding contains information about who did the digital
    encoding, when, with what software, and in what aspects.
    Standard type values for the encoder element are music,
    words, and arrangement, but other types may be used. The
    type attribute is only needed when there are multiple
    encoder elements.

    The supports element indicates if the encoding supports
    a particular MusicXML element. This is recommended for
    elements like beam, stem, and accidental, where the
    absence of an element is ambiguous if you do not know
    if the encoding supports that element. For Version 2.0,
    the supports element is expanded to allow programs to
    indicate support for particular attributes or particular
    values. This lets applications communicate, for example,
    that all system and/or page breaks are contained in the
    MusicXML file.
