Wow, this is an amazing project.  I know XML is powerful, but had never thought about using it to encode music, let alone transforming it to produce a traditionally formated piece of sheet music.  I've played piano most my life and this has kind of rocked my world.  Kudos to the UVA team; the possibilities here are endless!

More information is located at http://music-encoding.org/ .  One of UVA's information architects/metadata specialists began its development more than ten years ago, but has really grown to maturity in the last two years with a number of grants, publications, and tools.

XML DTD for encoding music.  This has been going on for about a year but I hadn't been aware of it.  Those of you affiliated with UVA were, no doubt :)
