You can use music symbols to decorate your text or to explain musical notation in documents or websites. Though there is not a key on your computer keyboard to create musical symbols, you can copy and paste the symbols from a website that has created the symbol using HTML entity code. You can also type your own musical symbols using desktop alt keyboard number codes.
