tied-type data type

The tied-type type is used as an attribute of the tied element to specify where the visual representation of a tie begins and ends. A <tied> element which joins two notes of the same pitch can be specified with tied-type start on the first note and tied-type stop on the second note. To indicate a note should be undamped, use a single <tied> element with tied-type let-ring. For other ties that are visually attached to a single note, such as a tie leading into or out of a repeated section or coda, use two <tied> elements on the same note, one start and one stop.

In start-stop cases, ties can add more elements using a continue type. This is typically used to specify the formatting of cross-system ties.
