[MEI-L] @color on verse or syl

Hi, Raffaele,

This is by design.  <syl> permits <rend>, which is a member of att.color.  The goal was to limit the number of members of att.color and encourage the use of <rend> for such things.

The downside to this, of course, is that color has to be specified for each syllable and can't be stated at the <verse> level.  So, making <verse> a member of att.color is probably a good idea.  Still, I'd prefer not to do the same with <syl>.

Please go ahead and file a request.

Deal list,

Neither verse or syl seem to be members of att.color (which means that the @color attribute is not allowed). Is this by design? If yes, how can I color my lyrics? Otherwise, if we agree that there's no harm in having @color for lyrics, I'll file a feature request.
