    musical symbol Truetype

    Level 7
      Hello:
      I'm developing a musical application and I need to write in a staff musical
      notes.
      Do you know what Truetype fonts can do this?
      Many thanks

          Wow. I don't know of any font that could accomplish such a task. How could you get a 5 octave range from the keys on the qwerty keyboard? And each font symbol would need so much detail - the stave lines and the note, perhaps an accidental. You can use a program like Sibelius to write you music, then export is as a jpeg and import it to your director cast. Or you can use Sibelius' Xtra to import the score directly into your program (though their Xtra is rather Xpensive). If anyone does know of a musical notation font, please let me know. I'm not talking about musical symbols (notes, staves, clefs, etc), but staves with notes where you can "type out" a melody.
