Sorry for my confusing post. Yes AttributeType is always a number, new that,
what I meant is that I used to think an attribute type of 1 meant it was a
text type, while say 2 was an integer, etc.

The question is not that attribute type in @attr 1=4 is 1, but rather what
is 1 in refernce too, what does 1 mean, a type of what?

Hope thats a bit clearer.

Thanks again,

Short answer: it's always a number. What examples made you think otherwise?

What follows @attr is the attribute type, the attribute value and an
set (optional). Format is
   @attr [attributeset] type=value

   @attr 1=4        (type is 1, value is 4)
   @attr gils 1=2020  (attribute set is gils, type is 1, value is 2020).
