Greetings from Brazil!

First of all, sorry if this is not the right e-mail address to write about
this issue.

I'm writing the Audio W3C team because I believe MIDI files should be
supported by the HTML5 <audio> tag. MIDI support on the web today is much
worse than it was 15 years ago. It seems we have moved backwards instead of
improving MIDI support. As you know, MIDI files allow for rich music
content to be played without downloading big, compressed-or-not wave files.

Thank you very much for your attention.

Kind regards,

beings he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre
animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder
and pain cannot reap joy and love." -
