There are HTML entities for almost any symbol that we use in our daily communication – musical notation, such as sharps and flats, is available as well.
The visible difference ranges from subtle to extremely obvious, mostly depending on the
font-size CSS properties. You can copy and paste the HTML entities or the corresponding Unicode notation from the following table.
|Use this HTML entity||to produce this||instead of writing this|
|flat||natural||sharp||double sharp||double flat|
Please note: This list is not complete. There are dozens of symbols in the “Musical Symbols” block of the unicode charset. I’ll improve on what I presented above in future posts. In the meanwhile you can find more musical notation here.
