|Catalog||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that the list definition is for a site gallery, a list gallery, or a web part gallery.|
|Category||Optional Text. Specifies the category with which to associate lists created through the list definition. Possible values include the following:

|DocumentAsEnclosure||Optional Boolean. Specifies if the list includes documents as an enclosure object.|
|DocumentTemplate||Optional Integer. Currently unused. This is valid only in a ListTemplate element whose BaseType is set to 1 (document libraries). For future compatibility, this should either be blank or correspond to the Type attribute of a DocumentTemplate element in the DocumentTemplates enumeration. Same as previous version, but deprecated.|
|DontSaveInTemplate||Optional Boolean. TRUE to exclude the content of the list when the list is saved as a custom list template or when the site to which the list belongs is saved as a custom site template through the user interface.|
|EditPage||Optional Text. Specifies the name of a custom application page (
|EnableModeration||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that content approval is enabled by default in lists created through the template; otherwise, FALSE.|
|EnablePeopleSelector||Optional Boolean. Specifies the value for the EnablePeopleSelector property.|
|EnableResourceSelector||Optional Boolean. Specifies the value for the EnableResourceSelector property.|
|FeatureId||Optional Text. Specifies the GUID that identifies the Feature with which the template is associated.|
|FolderCreation||Optional Boolean. TRUE to enable folder creation within the list and to specify that the New Folder command appears on the New menu in list views; otherwise, FALSE.|
|Hidden||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that the list definition is not available on the Create page for creating lists.|
|HiddenList||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that a list created from the list definition is hidden.|
|Image||Optional URL. Specifies a URL to an icon used to represent a list.|
|MultipleMtgDataList||Optional Boolean. If
|MultipleTypes||Optional Boolean. Specifies if there are multiple list types.|
|MustSaveRootFiles||Optional Boolean. TRUE to save the pages contained within a special document library that is used internally for a Meeting Workspace site when the list template is saved without content. This attribute is not intended for public use.|
|Name||Required Text. Specifies the internal name of the list definition. No spaces or special characters can be used. This name is also used to find the folder that contains the Schema.xml file that defines the schema in use.|
|NewPage||Optional Text. Specifies the name of a custom page to use as the page for creating a new list through the list template.|
|NoCrawl||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that the list not be visible in search results; otherwise, FALSE.|
|OnQuickLaunch||Optional Boolean. TRUE to display lists created from the list definition on the QuickLaunch bar.|
|Path||Optional Text. Specifies the name of the site definition that contains the list definition; for example, STS. This path is assumed to be relative to the 12\TEMPLATE directory. The path can be directed at a Features schema; for example, Features\Announcements. Same as previous version, but deprecated.|
|RootWebOnly||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that the list created from the definition exists only in the root website of a site collection. Same as previous version, but deprecated.|
|SecurityBits||Optional Text. Defines the item-level permissions in the list for users with sufficient permission to read or edit list items. The SecurityBits attribute contains a 2-digit string. The first digit in the string controls the read access; the second digit in the string controls the edit access. For read access, the following are valid digits:
|Sequence||Optional Integer. Specifies the ordering priority to use for the list template on the Create page. If Sequence is not set, the template appears last in arbitrary order with any other templates that also lack a Sequence value. Two templates that specify the same sequence are sorted together in an arbitrary order.|

|SyncType||Optional Boolean. TRUE to override the default client list type associated with a SharePoint Foundation base template.|
|Type||Optional Integer. Provides a unique identifier for the template. This identifier must be unique within the feature, but need not be unique across all feature definitions or site definitions. For a list of the default list template types, see SPListTemplateType.
This attribute corresponds to the Type attribute of the List element.
|Unique||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that the list definition or list template can be used to create a list only during site creation and cannot be used to create a list through the object model or user interface after the site template or definition is applied. Setting this attribute to TRUE has the effect of making the list hidden so that it does not appear as an option on the Create page or on the Documents and Lists page.|
|UseRootFolderForNavigation||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that a link to the list that is displayed in Quick Launch points to the root folder so that users go to a custom welcome page, instead of to the default list view page.
If a custom welcome URL is not set for the list, rendering a link to the root folder is functionally equivalent to linking to the default list view.
|VersioningEnabled||Optional Boolean. TRUE to specify that versioning is enabled by default in lists created through the template; otherwise, FALSE.|
