Accidentals

The template correctly renders Unicode sharps (), flats (), and natural signs () in Internet Explorer which would otherwise display empty squares unless a full Unicode font is chosen in its Preferences. The choice of fonts also improves the rendering in other browsers on Microsoft Windows such as Mozilla Firefox. See the tables below to compare the results in your current browser. The template makes use of SVG to display double flat (double flat), double sharp (double sharp), and microtonal signs since the corresponding Unicode characters are not widely supported.

Some browsers and typefaces support ♩ (♩) and ♪ (♪) for quarter and eighth notes, as well as ♫ (♫) and ♬ (♬) for beamed eighth-note and sixteenth-note pairs respectively, but since the display of these characters does not match any of the other (non-supported) notes and rests, this template does not use these characters.

Sample text

In place of the single whole note (whole note), Chopin writes eighth rest half note quarter note eighth note, completely changing the profile of the music.

Note that there is no graphical distinction between treble clef and G-clef; alto clef, tenor clef and C-clef; bass clef and F-clef. The names preserve a difference in meaning and make the caption text (for screen readers) different.

For a general time signature, use {{music|time|<top number>|<bottom number>}}. This makes use of Template:Time signature, which should not be used on its own.

Scale degrees

Scale degrees are often represented as Arabic numerals with a hat on them and thus the root of a scale is scale degree 1.

Key signatures

Key signatures must be typed in using the names of the articles themselves on keys. Note that there is no visual difference between the major and minor key signatures, but the alt text is different.
