    P.T. asked,

    > Why couldn't be (theoreticaly) music notation handled in unicode?

    Because it's not plain text. Music notation requires a lot of information
    about positions, sizes, etc, that are way beyond plain text.

    But if you need to put a musical symbol into inline text, you can do so.
    Some musical symbols are included in the standard. In fact, most of the
    symbols needed for just about any (western) music layout are encoded, as
    plain symbols.
