Why do all this work? A character is a character is a character, except 
for certain well known ranges. The more we try to interpret the more 
obscure characters, the more trouble we get into.

Besides, some of the musical symbols might make perfect sense as tag 
names. Suppose I want to show all the occurrences of a given musical 
symbol in a score, I could use that symbol as the name of an element, 
and use child elements to contain each position.
