ATTRIBUTE  (Preferred term)

In computing, an attribute is a specification that defines a property of an object, element, or file. It may also refer to or set the specific value for a given instance of such.
However, in actual usage, the term attribute can and is often treated as equivalent to a property depending on the technology being discussed.
For clarity, attributes should more correctly be considered metadata. An attribute is frequently and generally a property of a property.
