Hi all,

some observations concerning the HTML version of the Learning Manual…

2.2.4 Combining notes into chords
In the following example the square brackets don't make much sense as there is no real need for them:
r4 <c e g>8[ <c f a>]~ <c f a>2 |
r4 <c e g>8( <c e g>\> <c e g>4 <c f a>\!) |
To show that beams and ties can be combined with chords I'd rather suggest something like that:
<c e g>8<c e g>8 <c e g>8[ <c f a>]~ <c f a>2 |
r4 <c e g>8( <c e g>\> <c e g>4 <c f a>\!) |

I agree to a point. I think an example should show default behaviour first, then progress so we could add one more measure and show

<c e g>8 <c e g>8 <c e g> <c f a>~ <c f a>2 |
<c e g>8\< <c f a> <c f a>2 \times 2/3 { <c e g>8 <c e g> <c e g>\! } |
<c e g>8. <c e g>16\( <c e g>8 <c e g>([ <c e g>8] <c f a>4.)\) |

That way you see what the beaming does (without any extra notation) and then the second example shows other beaming styles and the third shows other markups that are common. That way we cover most of the basics but in increments.

What do you think?
