Set a display name. This field is optional, being used only as a more descriptive
rendering in application's profiling dialogs.
Use the New, Edit,
Delete buttons to add, edit and delete possible values of the
attribute. Each attribute value can have a description.
Choose whether the attribute accepts a single value (Single

custom one, that must be supported by the specified document type. For example, the
DITA document type only accepts spaces as delimiters for attribute values.
