Although I have not worked in that area for decades, I very much agree with Mr. Berkovitz and would be interested in chatting with him. I am only at TPAC Wednesday afternoon-Friday. The links didn't come through in your forwarded e-mail, but if [2] is in the afternoon I'll try to make it.

>> Hello Digital Publishing Chairs/Staff,
>> 
>> First, Iíd like to introduce myself; Iím the AC Rep for new W3C member Hal Leonard, a global publisher of music and music-related content.  I am also the co-chair of the Web Audio WG.  (Technically my employer is Noteflight, a web-based notation app company that is a subsidiary of Hal Leonard.)
>> 
>> I will be attending TPAC Monday through Wednesday, and Iím very interested in having a conversation about music notation markup with interested parties from your IG if possible. I see music notation markup as a parallel use case to mathematical markup in many ways, and I noted that you have a task force for STEM looking at declarative formats in science/tech/engineering/math. (If youíve encountered the acronym ďSTEAMĒ - the "A" standing for Arts - this maps perfectly onto my thinking. Iím broadly interested in infusing EPUB standards with an awareness of artistic content.) Perhaps some members of that task force might be particularly interested.
>> 
>> Iíd appreciate any thoughts you have on how we might connect while Iím at TPAC. We have a short segment Tuesday afternoon in our Audio group meeting [1] devoted to music notation; in addition, Iíve proposed a breakout session for Wednesday [2] that will focus on music notation markup with somewhat more time to spend. But some informal conversation would be nice too!

>> Thanks in advance for your time.
