Ah, I see. Then I would claim that if you don't have
"a specific notation for them in the markup language"
then they're not really "attributes" per se -- certainly
not in the sense meant by SGML/HTML/XML -- they're just
more markup (or more sub-structure).
Google for some of Erik Naggum's rants from long ago
about why attributes [in the SGML/HTML/XML sense] are
basically a bad idea...
