Although as a character encoding standard, Unicode includes characters
for many of the symbols used in musical notation, the ability to
display sheet music on screen will depend on a higher level protocol.
There seem to be a few in existence, including:
MNML - The Musical Notation Markup Language
SMDL - Standard Music Description Language, ISO/IEC DIS 10743:1995
(is mentioned on this page:)
A Brief Discussion of Standard Music Description Language
ISO/IEC Draft International Standard 10743

(This page appears to be down...)
Music and Lyrics Markup Language (4ML).
