Hi all,

Just wanted to give a quick half-update. I sent a message to the W3C mailing list about the rotated arpeggio glyphs, so that should move along soon.

I also discovered I'd missed a treasure trove of pre-encoded ornaments in SMuFL! Things are matching up quite nicely now. There's just one new contention in the Script section: LilyPond's `scripts.pralldown` doesn't *quite* match SMuFL's `ornamentPrecompTrillLowerSuffix`. Opinions are welcome on whether we should name ours something different.

I updated a bit of the text on the page so that a casual observer can be directed to the conversations happening here. Otherwise, nothing else is new.

See you all next time!

I don't know... the SMuFL specs don't seem to say anything about it.
I'll message their list when I get the time.
Thanks in advance!

* In your table I don't see a Bravura glyph
   `ornamentZigZagLineShortened`.  Is it really shortened that much
   so that you no longer can see it? :-)
Nope! `ornamentZigZagLineShortened` is a name I thought up in lieu
of a SMuFL equivalent.  It's a limitation of my coloring system that
all contentious mappings, whether suggested new glyphs or existing
bravura glyphs, show up the same red color.
Ah, ok.

Anyone object to calling it `ornamentZigZagLineAlt` until further
This is fine with me.
