Sure. According to Groves it was pretty much dead by the end
of the 17th C.

It does, as previously noted.

Agreed. However, being a newbie to this package, when I 
have a problem, or a perceived problem, I can either ask
on this forum or not. My post is about a non-intuitive 
feature--Why the rest and not the note?--that is not clearly
documented ("If you need a maxima/large use Baroque note heads,
there is no maxima notes in the standard set"). 

Thanks for the chat!
