ChordPro: Chord Localization
#13
I had to deal with this extensively when I added chord localizations to ChordPro.

In ChordPro, there is a source notation (where the score is written in) and a target notation (how it must be shown). So if the source notation is German, B means H♭. By default, this is also the way it will be shown. If you would select to show common notation, you'll get B♭ instead of B.

ChordPro defaults to common notation, but MSPro could show by default using the notation system corresponding to the localization.

I think it would be a bad choice to default the source notation to the localization since many people download ChordPro files from the internet and these are almost always in common notation. So I propose to add this as a (new) metadata item, e.g.

   {meta: notation German}

Summarizing for MSPro:
  • Add a setting for the default source notation
  • Add a setting for the desired show notation
  • Allow {meta: notation xxx} to override the source notation

Does this sound an acceptable approach?
