I looked a little on that, but I do not have any preference.

It is my idea to use the Helmholtz-Ellis notation for Turkish, Arab and Persian 
music: The single arrows are for Turkish music, and the double arrows are a 
mean value for the microtonal notes in Arab and Persian music, though strictly, 
there is no tradition for their exact values.

There are two caveats with Turkish notation: One is that is is normally noted a 
4th above the sounding pitch.  And common AEU (Arel-Ezgi-Uzdilek) swaps the 
sharp sign for a microtonal sharp.

It is a nice application.
