If you have an idea for a general clarification that the syntax is

my first idea was something along the lines of your refusal. :) i do have some other ideas about how to explain the syntax, but they depend
on where you want to put it in the docs.
where would you put it in 3.1.?

Hmm.  I was initially thinking of 3.1.2, but that subsection
(actually, the entire section) is really talking about
*macroscopic* style.  I mean, it refers back to the definition of
a (compound) "music expression".

With that in mind, perhaps 2.3.1 is the best place: add 2-3
sentences and an articulation (or dynamic, or something) to the

Thanks for the prompt!  I think the best place is in
2.1.2 Simple notation, in the Durations (rhythms) section.
This is where the entry of a duration is first mentioned,
and it's immediately after introducing the ' and , marks.
Perhaps immediately after the example there and before
dotted notes are mentioned would be ideal.  I'd be happy to
receive a patch, Simon.
