Ruby Annotation for Musical Symbols?

Is Ruby annotation http://www.w3.org/TR/ruby/
suitable for text with musical score written with symbols
from http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U1D100.pdf ?

All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Denmark.
And therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words "Jeg er dansker!"

Probably, though I would have thought that lining up the notes on the
stave would be tricky in XHTML.

As you'll know, the W3C present ruby annotation in a context which is
very closely targetted to the annotation of CJK text. I think it's
fair to say that the extension to glosses for other kinds of text is
of obvious utility, and is not straying too far from the original
intentions. But (apropos of a related issue that we've recently
discussed) I can't find anything clearly codified about handling RTL
writing systems, so it's hard to say authoritatively what should
happen, beyond what reasoning and logic would suggest.

But now you're asking to apply ruby to musical scores. First, let's
see your musical score, marked-up in HTML? I think you need some
other markup language than HTML to deal effectively with musical
scores, to be honest.

A web search suggests, amongst other things,
http://www.recordare.com/stanford.html , and thence

Hi. I am interested in learning a new programming language, and have been debating whether to learn Ruby or Python. How do these compare and contrast with one another, and what advantages does one language provide over the other? I would like to consider as many opinions as I can on this matter before I start studying either language in depth. Any help/comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

I discovered Python a few months ago and soon decided to invest time in learning it well. While surfing the net for Python, I also saw the hype over Ruby and tried to find out more about it, before I definitely embarked on studying and practicing Python.

"Simon Mullis" <simon@mullis.co.ukwrites: Python uses strings for that purpose, which works well due to their immutability. Python automatically interns strings used in source code that look like identifiers, so memory is saved. An even closer equivalent of symbols are interned strings (see the "intern" built-in), but they are not as nice to work with as "real" symbols.
